Sorry! We cant take any more pre-orders for this finish

For modern music, and playing the BBb bass part in brass bands, 5-valves are really required to cover the full chromatic range down to the fundamental. We have therefore re-designed the Luzern with a 5th rotary valve tuned to a flat tone, as is standard on modern tubas – and operated by thumb of right hand. This is a tuba that can be used to play any contrabass tuba, or BBb bass music, and provide a superb broad tone under band or orchestra. In our opinion, we believe this is the best value, full size BBb tuba available and is sure to satisfy a player of any standard, from a local community band level, to leading professional.
