We’re delighted to share with you the wonderful news that, this week, Wessex Tubas is in Sweden!

Invited to this beautiful part of Europe by the one and only Jorgen Advall of the Swedish Naval Band, our Founder Jonathan Hodgetts will be attending a number of exclusive events with renowned musician Will Druiett, during what will surely be a busy, productive, and all-round enjoyable week.

This generous invitation comes after Jorgen became the proud owner of one of our TB693H Prokofiev Tubas; an instrument which forms part of our new range of High Grade products, lovingly created by the hands of our skilled craftsman.
