A New Wessex is Born!

Postby Wyvern » Tue Jun 19, 2018 10:47 am

Wessex genius tuba designer, Chuck Nickles has today put together new 6-valve rotary F tuba based on the Berg which will be Wessex new TF436 ‘Linz’. The 5th valve is a flat step and 6th valve flat half step. Obviously the prototype needs finishing with left hand rotor levers, but we can already say it plays as well as its 5-valve brother.

a very nice picture of Chuck, and (to me/opinion) the appearance of the 6-valve version is a lot more handsome than the 5-valve.
