Big bore, big bell, and 4 front-piston valves.
This is the ultimate step-up concert horn for the advancing student or local symphony performer. It features a full .732" bore, 17-2/5" bell, 4 front-action valves with contoured nickel silver pistons, and nickel outer slides. Its beautiful rich tone, ease of blowing, and positive response make it capable of the most beautiful music.
The innovative design of the Jupiter 582 tuba is unique. The valve tubing is an open wrap, unlike anything seen before on the market. The 4 front-action piston valves have a moderate throw due to the good sized bore of the instrument. Good to look at and plenty of sound.
