This superb CC travel tuba 'Mighty Gnome' is a tornister tuba design exclusive to the Wessex Tubas range. This is developed from our BBb 'Mighty Midget' and plays just as well - providing a powerful, mini tuba for the CC tuba player. The original purpose of this type of tuba was to make a portable tuba for military bands in the days before motorised transport, and as such although so small it is designed to play like a true tuba and is suitable to play as bass with a brass, wind, or jazz band. This we have trialled ourselves and found to be the case with good feedback. In the modern age this mini tuba has many uses such as;

  • Travel tuba (small enough in a gig bag to fly as cabin luggage)
  • Practice tuba, particularly for those that live in a flat/apartment with limited space
  • Lightweight tuba for standing, or marching gigs
  • Children’s tuba, being of a size they can manage
  • Tuba for anyone who has health issues handling a full size tuba
  • Easy to transport on public transport, or even on your back travelling by bicycle
  • Small ensemble playing where a full size tuba may overpower the musical texture
  • The ideal present for the tuba player that has everything!
