Review of the JP379CC from John Packer's site:
" The JP379CC is a beautifully designed instrument, based on the traditional German tuba. The tuba features a 17” bell for outstanding resonance with 4 piston valves and a thumb activated rotary valve. The intonation is immaculate in all registers of this instrument, extremely free blowing and so easy to play. The player can produce such a dark and rich sound from putting not a lot of effort in. After going through some excerpts, I found not only can this instrument produce a dark sound, but also a beautiful warm tone in the middle register and a sweet tone in the higher register. I find myself not having a lot to write about. I’ll certainly be purchasing one over the next few weeks. This is certainly one of the best CC tubas I have ever played, and to top it off, its amazing value. I cannot recommend this tuba enough. "
The JP379 is supplied with a mouthpiece and comes with a lightweight case. The case includes hard wheels and an ergonomic pull strap and handle and features a large storage pocket for sheet music and small accessories. Internally, there are also several compartments for small accessories.
