Product details

Suitable for

This tuba is a fantastic compact instrument with 4 front facing valves perfect for wind bands, orchestras and concert bands alike.

This isn't a common instrument in the UK, with a forward facing action being more widely used in America and on the Continent.

The JP179B is also a wonderful tuba for more experienced players looking for a lightweight instrument for marching bands. 

Our guide A guide to buying your first tuba will help you know what to look for and explains the many features found on a tuba.

Unique benefits

  • Front action valves, meaning the tuba will fit in and blend well with the trombone section of any band/ensemble
  • Lightweight, compact design for comfort. Despite its smaller form factor it still performs well in line with other much more expensive (and larger) models
  • Fourth valve slightly lower to allow for the smaller little finger
  • Thumb ring for comfort when holding the instrument both sat down and marching.
  • Carriage rings for marching
  • Rose Brass leadpipe for a more focused and warm tone
