B&S 3100/WGJ-L JBL-Classics

F-tuba

Jens Björn-Larsen (formerly Copenhagen Radio Philharmonic, now European Chamber Orchestra and tuba professor in Hanover) celebrated all his great successes and awards on his B&S 3100W F-tuba, and he could not find any comparable instrument.

Until he joined the development team at B&S: the basic concept remained the same, however, they changed the proportions within the body, mounted all tuning slides free of this and built a completely different leadpipe, in which the 1st valve sits.

The original goal of Jens Björn-Larsen, for it to be as good as the original, was met and exceeded by B&S. The new development was simply better, responded more easily, was better tunable, and it stays true to the typical B&S F-tuba sound, which does not try to be a C-tuba sound.

B & S is made in Germany, simple quality!
Jürgen 3011, 25.11.2012
The B & S Tuba is outstanding in its processing, a light weight. It is very responsive to the response, only in the lower range with 4 to 5 valves at the same time it could be even more open.

This model is highly recommended.
Thanks again
Jürgen from HOF.
