This full-sized tuba is small in appearance but surprising due to the power and projection of the sound emitted. This is an ideal instrument for general playing, especially if you own only a single tuba or need a high quality instrument for the unpredictable demands of freelancing. This instrument is at home as a solo instrument, in chamber music, in average-sized orchestras, or lighter orchestral repertoire. The piston valves feature oversized valve buttons for ease of use and the highest quality piston valves on the market today. This instrument was designed in cooperation with Sam Pilafian.
Each instrument is engineered to fulfill specific needs of the modern tubist while maintaining a dense, rich characteristic sound which has long been associated with the Meinl Weston instruments. In order to produce a line of instruments particularly suited to the American market, each instrument was designed in close cooperation with many professional tubists. All instruments feature ergonomic design making these instruments particularly comfortable and easy to play. Main tuning slides are vertical pull and valve slides are arranged for easy access.
