The JP277 is ideal for the player looking for a cost effective but capable instrument featuring a fully compensating system. This instrument is designed for players looking for a big sound in all types of playing, from brass quintet to British brass band to large orchestral projects. Add this affordable EEb tuba to your stable of horns today and start taking advantage of the performance opportunities where your 4/4 BBb or CC is too big of a tuba.


“This is a staggering tuba for the money. The full orchestral range is easily available on this instrument and the timbre throughout matches very well. The right hand position is now much better with a much smaller reach, the new valves are efficient and much quieter in operation. I thought the finish was good on the older model but this is beautiful.” -Ewan Easton (full review at
