This is one of the finest F tubas in current manufacture, custom built in in Hamburg, Germany. It is a medium-size F equipped with 4 piston and 1 rotary valve. Its lower register is surprisingly robust, even rivaling that of much larger F tubas. Across the range of the instrument, the note slotting is somewhere between instinctive and automatic, and the great enemy of uneven response between heavily valved and open notes is inconsequential. Effortless slurring and crisp, lively attacks are both defining characteristics of this instrument.
Gronitz tubas are truly handmade. That term is used with relative disingenuousness across a variety of manufacturing categories, but with Gronitz, that characterization is absent any caveat. Every valve, every tuning slide, every crook is hand-fitted onto the horn in a small shop in Hamburg, Germany by master craftspeople for whom brass instrument manufacturing is practically part of their DNA.
