A lot of tuba for little money

I was looking for a handy B-tuba for the small purse.
When buying the Thomann-B-Tuba-Junior I was already curious what I would get for the low price.
The first tuba, which was delivered, unfortunately had a transport damage. Thomann has responded immediately and sent me a new one. The forwarding company brought this and the defective immediately taken.
The second tuba had no transport damage, but a fourth valve was anything but quality work. Unfortunately the Thomann service could only be persuaded to spare parts (wings and horseshoes), when I threatened with the return of the instrument.

The supplied lightweight case provides good protection for the tuba. However, I do not want to wear this as a backpack. The attachment of the backpack straps does not look very trustworthy to me.

I was pleasantly surprised by the sound of the small tuba. I play with an A & S-25 mouthpiece. It has a pleasant fine sound.
The speech is very easy, already after the first days, 3 octaves of the scale were playing. Also the intonation is very well balanced.
To form a solid foundation in a large orchestra, the tuba certainly has too little volume. For this she was not built. But as a second instrument and for pupils and / or small ensembles it is very suitable.

The dismantling machine is very positive. However, one does not get to the lower valve covers. Also the valve pulls and the tuning cable are very cleanly fitted. In contrast to the Internet description, my tuba are also the interior of nickel silver.

As far as the positive points, but where light is, there is also known shadows:
The mouthpiece in the mouthpipe was turned out with the wrong cone angle. The mouthpiece only clamps at the extreme edge of the receptacle. Since the mouthpiece is turned out a bit too big anyway, I will here still a fitting sleeve to make both to equalize.

The processing is fine for the price, however, details could be solved even better. Some of the installed screws were not stainless.
The fourth valve I had to loop again. And replace the spare parts described above.
In order to get flawless valve transitions, I had to adjust these still, or the stop silicones and cut.

All in all, you get a lot of money here for little money. The joy would surely be somewhat greater if one were to exercise more care during the transfer inspection.
If someone wants a handy, nice sound, cheap tuba and is willing to spend a few tinkers for this, I can really recommend this instrument.

What tuba? Price / performance as top priority!

I have several other models of the brand "Thomann" in the price class up to 3000 plays and must say for 1400 ¤ this bass is unbeatable.
The machine runs (still) impeccably, the design I like extremely well is not so global and with nearly 7.5 kg "very light".
The sound is more than ok, as well as the dynamics, intonation just as ok - you can compensate if you know the instrument - you can absolutely claim the hammer for price / performance.
Let's see the years because of varnish and so, but currently no hook at my "Berta" to recognize?

Conclusion: lots of bass for little money - buy command?
One can surely get a "more optimal" sound, but at 9000 upwards to expect.
