The Amati ABB323-O 4-Valve BBb Tuba is a perfect choice for the player looking for a tuba with 4 valves. The ABB323-O Tuba features a .640 inch bore in a compact design with four ergonomic front action nickel plated piston valves with vertical pull tuning slides for a responsive full tone with outstanding response plus a 15.7 inch upright bell for excellent projection.
This tuba has a good sound, even intonation and has a good lower register and would work for a good 4-valve beginner horn at the elementary and middle school. Would also work as a good small tuba for an older person looking for a lighter horn with a good lower register for quintet, small groups and Dixie. BBb Tuba is available in lacquer (ABB323-O) finish. Case NOT included.
