Inspired by the once popular American ‘Monster Bass’ Eb tubas of the past, Wessex are delighted to introduce our new TE665HP ‘Tubby’ Eb tuba which has much improved intonation against those tubas of the past. This is a modern 5-valve tuba with ‘York’ sound. The ideal for those tubist who prefer playing Eb tuba, but want to produce a beautiful rich broad tone. This tuba can easily produce the sound of a 4/4 CC tuba, while has the agility of an Eb tuba.
The new TE665HP is all hand-made from sheet brass in Wessex high-grade workshop, so although big for an Eb tuba, is surprisingly light to carry.
