A reasonable purchase

Johannes709, 01.07.2012
I was looking for a double-bass B-tuba, which I wanted to use in many different ways: in the Trombone Choir, the Brass Ensemble and the Symphony Orchestra. After registration, I had generous time at Thomann to sample several tubas in peace: B & S GR 55, Miraphone 91A, Cerveny Arion and Melton 2011. I chose the Melton: the sound is phenomenal, but not intrusive, the response easy and The height is effortless (naturally dependent on the mouthpiece), similar to the Miraphone. But to the Meldon I had a better relationship from the beginning. The B & S certainly has the more sonorous tone and more sound, but also weighs more - if you are much "on the go", that means something. The Cerveny I found technically less convincing than the Melton. In the latter case, the mouthpipe and the mouthpiece are more conspicuous than in my present tubules. I have to keep it different, so do not put it on the chair, but on the thighs, while holding with the left hand. However, the intonation, especially the 5th harmonic, ie the third, which is sometimes too deep on tubas, can be reached without difficulty with "zero", if necessary with a slightly pulled out "three". The octaves and fifths are absolutely perfect, the depth to subcontra A still sounding, and not only rattles, in the heights up to 8, 9 and 10 - depending on the fortune.

In short: I am very satisfied with my Melton "Gravity", by the way also with the very friendly, generous, competent staff at Thomann. It is worthwhile to simply go to Treppendorf and watch the beautiful sales rooms with the many, many instruments. I'll do it again.

Top Instrument

Heinrich, 29.04.2011
After I already bought my first Tuba at Thomann, I could now afford the Melton RA2011. It is more than worth taking the road to Treppendorf. The Melton RA2011 has a very direct response, the sound corresponds exactly to my ideas and the at acceptable price / weight / size. In comparison to my Cerveny, the stroke is unusually short and requires only a small amount of force. The funtion of the valves is a real pleasure and will also inspire such tubers, who are looking for an instrument with perinett valves (like me). Also with regard to the processing I could not find the smallest deficiency. I am thrilled and will go to Treppendorf to Thomann when I think of a new Tuba purchase.
