New Mini Jazz Tuba

Postby Wyvern » Sun Jun 25, 2017 6:59 am

I am pleased to announce the Wessex TB162 Mini Jazz tuba is out and we now have the first few in stock. Based on the BBb Mighty Midget tornister tuba, we have fitted a forward facing bell of larger dimensions. This really gives it a noticeably bigger sound - we estimate three times the volume of the Mighty Midget and it sounds a bigger tuba with more breath.

Obviously not as portable as the Mighty Midget for travel, if you are just looking for a light, small tuba for standing gigs - this may be the answer.

Very interesting. I noticed the bore is .59". Do you have any clips of it being played?

Any hope of a detachable/turnable bell like on some baritones? No upright bell necessarily needed but the ability to turn the bell makes it much easier to put in a case. (A baritone I used years ago in school had a turnable bell and I chose it because the case was so much easier to carry that the forward bell baritones.)

No plans for a detachable bell. That would mean a collar and more weight

Looks very cool. Love to see/hear a video clip of it in action.

(You're a good player, Jonathan. I don't know why you don't play all the horns you sell on video for your website.)

There are many videos of the wessex tornisters on youtube. They sound tuba like.
