Review from Ewan Easton

“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
