If they sold you a bag that doesn't fit your horn, you should be able to exchange it!

I bought it in the secondary market and the guy selling the horn told me it didn't fit when I bought it. I was happy with the hard case.

Curious as to which Wessex Tuba you purchased, and your review of said horn?
Thank you!

I bought the Luzern BBb. I might not be the best person to review a horn because, though my bachelors was on the tuba, I took a long hiatus (many years). That being said, I really am enjoying the horn. It has a nice round sound, seems well built and doesn't seem to have any more intonation concerns then any other horn I've played. I've had the horn for about three months now and, considering the price, it was a great buy.

The correct bag for that horn is the 210

Bazzelsup,
Thanks for the reply and review. Sometime in the near future I need to either invest in a bit of work to my Holton (valve operation and body dents - it served penal time as a school horn for about 3 decades) or consider an additional 4/4 or 5/4 horn. Hoping to get to play a few, including several Wessex horns, and the Luzern is certainly a beauty with good reviews.

Wagtuba23,
If your question is to me, I can't. I haven't played anything other than the Holton for...oh.....25 years. I do have friends nearby with newer horns in a variety of sizes, piston vs rotors, etc. When I'm ready and able to do a comparison I'll post it, FWIW.
