  • JP379FF review by Elliott Milum

    By: ,

    From first gazing eyes on the instrument, I could immediately see how well constructed this tuba was. It is the type of tuba that feature 5 front action rotary valves, all of which combine to make the playing experience effortless and comfortable. From playing the first note, you can immediately hear sweetness, clarity and a clear focus in the tone. Right from the middle register this instrument can really project, and it sings absolutely beautifully in the higher register. It can also display a great foundation in any large ensemble with such a warm low register too. This tuba is absolutely perfect for any solo work, chamber ensembles, and even a symphony orchestra.
