Cerveny 683CBB still made?

Postby Alex F » Sun Jun 03, 2018 5:51 pm

Can not find the above on Cerveny’s site nor on WWBW. Is it still made? If not, what has replaced it?

Looking to reduce my tuba real estate. I love my King 2341 (ex Mike Finn with Stofer mods) but it is just to heavy and unwieldy for my aging bones. The Cerveny is an option as is the JP379B. I am in contact with Herr Bloke.

I just picked up my JP379B today. With a very small sample size I approve.

I believe Mr. Alex would appreciate a weight, and a bell diameter.

Ordered a JP379B from the House of Bloke. Just got a call from the freight company and scheduled delivery for Thursday.

You won’t be disappointed. I’m just a hack community-band playing tuba player, but I feel like a tuba-playing monster when I’m playing this thing. Easy to hold, easy to play, weighs next to nothing.
