Overview

The Meinl Weston 6450/2 Baer Handmade Series 5-Valve 6/4 CC Tuba was developed together with Alan Baer, tubist with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, who played on Gronitz and Mirafone instruments, but needed a large orchestral CC-Tuba that would exhibit the flexibility to create an immense amount of sound without sacrificing core or clarity. It features a .748" bore with a .787" 4th valve bore and a .846" 5th valve bore plus a 18.89" upright bell. It also features bows that are hand hammered and are lighter to create a slightly quicker response than the machine-molded bows of the production series Baer tuba. The Meinl Weston 6450/2 Baer Handmade Series 5-Valve 6/4 CC Tuba is available in silver finish. Case sold separately inlcuded.

This new orchestral Tuba was developed together with Alan Baer, the Tubist with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra who played on Gronitz and Mirafone, but needed a large orchestral CC-Tuba that would exhibit the flexibility to create an immense amount of sound without sacrificing core or clarity. While on tour with the New York Philharmonic, Meinl-Weston brought Mr. Baers ideas to reality and created this new model together with him.
