For tubists who really want to showcase their highest level of skill, a tuba with 6 valves is the way to go. As every experienced tubist knows, 6-valve tubas offer more fingering capabilities for the purpose of improving intonation. For solely on F tubas, the 6th valve is usually tuned as a flat half step - this gives performers the ability to play low G as 1-4-5-6 and low G-flat as 1-2-4-5-6. If you're thinking strongly about purchasing a new 6-valve tuba, you couldn't have picked a better catalog; here, you'll come across beautifully-crafted 6-valve tubas from respected brass instrument manufacturers like Meinl Weston, B&S and Miraphone.

So which 6-valve tuba is right for you? Only you know that, but it's a pretty safe bet to say that any serious player would be impressed with the B&S 5100/W Series 6-Valve F Tuba 5100/W-L. The design of this tuba is the result of over 40 years of development, and it's very obvious. Featuring nickel silver inner and outer tubes, a rotary valve mechanism supported by the popular 3B linkage system and a trigger for the second slide, everything about this tuba puts it in a class of its own.

Now for all you stage veterans and tuba connoisseurs who want to reward yourselves with a colossal powerhouse, feast your eyes on the Meinl Weston 6460 Kodiak Series 6-Valve 6/4 F Tuba 6460S Silver. This beauty came to life through a collaboration between Meinl Weston's think-tank, Gerhard A. Meinl and New York Philharmonic Orchestra tubist Alan Baer. In fact, Baer himself tested this horn in rehearsals with his band members. Boasting an extra-large bore to its right-handed thumb-activated 5th valve, the 6450S is equal parts explosive and expressive.

Whichever 6-valve tuba you ultimately choose from this section, you're going to be blown away by what you see, feel and here. The simple truth is that each company on this page has a sterling reputation for their brass instruments and their 6-valve tubas are no exception. Simply not enough can be said about the tuba's important role in the symphony orchestra, and arming yourself with one of these 6-valve tubas will enhance your repertoire in ways your audience could never imagine.
