The BBb tuba 1291 with a compact design is the piston equivalent to the Miraphone 191 rotary series. It is superb for large ensembles and big stages.
Major concert halls are no match for the efficient sound projection of this compact 5/4 size tuba. In the lower range, the sound is extremely open and centered. The free-floating leadpipe supports the large, clear and focused sound with very good intonation.
