A lot of tuba for little money

29.08.2016
For the Hobbymusiker in any case sufficient and a real alternative to more expensive Markeninstrumenten.

I use the instrument in the music band and in some ensembles as a second instrument, where it is quite also solistically (eg: Farmers Tuba, Tuba on the road, etc.).
Since I have the instrument only about a week, I will of course update my review, should change my mind.

The response of the notes is generally very good, even if the sounds from the small one to the large C start somewhat difficult or habituation - but with a smaller - like the original mouthpiece is not the case. (In this comparison I refer to my Yamaha YFB-S-822, which plays however in a somewhat different price class.) In the remaining area (Contra C to marked g - more I can not create on other instruments) is the approach of the instrument very good.

The intonation is very good and without the actuation of the tuning the tones are uniformly all too high (basic tuning to 443Hz), which is easy to correct by these - but you must say that the temperatures were very high during the test and thus the result Have falsified something.

All six valves run very well, even if they scratch some scratches in the first time - but can be repaired with some oil and play time. They are very light-weight and quickly return to the starting position.

The processing of the instrument is very nice and for the price one can easily one eye with 1-2 small Macken (small paint defects, etc.)

In my opinion, the Gigbag is not quite usable because it does not adequately protect the instrument and the tuba sits so tightly in it that it is hard to get it out again - will replace it with another model.

Really a pity is that the tuba has no bracket for a march fork and no eyelets for a carrying strap.

The included mouthpiece fits surprisingly very well to the instrument, however I use one of the company WHF-MOUTHPIECES, which in my opinion produces a stronger sound - is however taste.

Good workmanship

14.10.2016
The tuba is very well processed, is good and speaks well. It is modeled on a B & S tuba, though it is heavier from the weight.
The mouthpipe is very high positioned, as medium-sized player has thereby difficulties "to reach" the mouthpiece in sitting in a pleasant physical condition. That was the reason I sent the instrument back.
Otherwise it is a very nice instrument.
