Inspired by classic German design, the ‘Strauss’ is a large size F tuba suitable for playing in symphony orchestra, ideal for playing such works as Richard Strauss, Brahms, Bruckner 4th symphony, etc.
It produces a good rich tone and projects exceedingly well. Intonation across the range is excellent. This tuba is well suited for professional use, although only a fraction of the price of anything else comparable. Build quality is very good with robust rotary linkage, all nickel slides and non-corroisive gold brass leadpipe.
