Miraphone 191 Rotary BBb Tuba

Item Details

This is a newer design from Miraphone.  It's a large bell, large bore BBb tuba with a compact wrap. For that reason, it's called either a 4/4 or a 5/4 size tuba depending on whom you ask.  So, it's a big large bore 4/4, or a compactly wrapped 5/4.  You choose.  Besides the large bore, the 5/4 proponents look at the large bottom bow and large bell throat which makes this a decent bit larger than a 4/4 186 tuba.  This 191 has four or five rotary valves, a brass body with nickel leadpipe and bell kranz, and nickel trim.  It is available in all gold brass as well.  If you prefer a broader sound and a larger feeling horn that's still nimble, I think this is a big improvement over the 186 in slotting and tone. It's less brittle and more nimble than the 186, and it has the traditional fast Miraphone response but with less of a barking tone when you push the volume.  This professional quality instrument has an amazing low range.  If you have to play Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, this horn would be a great choice, as the low F simply roars out of the horn.  The new valve linkages on this model are absolutely silent.  No sound, no rattle, nada, nope, very quiet.  This horn has a large 18.5" (470 mm) bell and a constant bore through the valves of .835" (21.2 mm).  Includes attachments for lyre and carrying strap, and includes TU33 mouthpiece.  Case is not included.
Included:  Miraphone TU33 mouthpiece, case is sold separately
