This superb CC travel tuba - the 'Mighty Gnome' - is a tornister tuba design exclusive to the Wessex Tubas range.

The ‘Mighty Gnome’ travel tuba for sale has been 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 travel tubas was to make a portable tuba for military bands in the days before motorized transport and as such, although so small, it was always designed to play like a true tuba; suitable to play as bass with a brass, wind, or jazz band.

This we have tried 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
  • 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!

Special offers

  • Lightweight Gig Bag B160 is available at a discount when bought with tuba
  • Purpose stand available
  • Special Practice Mute

Note: Bag for this tuba is B160
