NEW! Now made with European hardened brass

Based on the Classic American 6/4 CC Tuba as used in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the TC694 CC 6/4 Front-Piston Tuba ‘Chicago-Presence’ is manufactured lightweight with a new design leadpipe and 18” bell to provide more presence and improved intonation with the ease of response of a 5/4 tuba.
