Often played by military bands travelling on horseback in the early part of the 20th century, the Compensating Tuba ‘Cavalry’ takes its name from days gone by; a modern twist on a forgotten classic.

With four compensated valves and a 19” bell for producing great, broad tones, the ‘Cavalry’ is ideally suited to use in bands or orchestras.

This beautiful instrument makes a wonderful alternative to the standard British top valve Eb Tuba; offering an improved layout that leaves the left hand free for operating slides to make fine tuning adjustments whilst playing.
