Miraphone Hagen 494 4V Rotary BBb Tuba

Item Details

New for 2022 Miraphone introduces the new Hagen 494 BBb tuba.  Joining the larger Hagen 495, 496 and 497 models, the 494 features a .740" bore, four rotary valves and a 16.9" bell. Miraphone calls it the 3/4 size Hagen ("three quarter size") but it looks pretty big to me...just not as big as the other Hagens. The 494 has a vertical tuning slide like the 282 and 191 BBb models, a fairly wide bell throat, I bet it handles about like the median of those two. Still rotary, but a slightly faster taper than a 186.  Efficient but fluffier.  Beef.  Also looks a little like a Cerveny Piggy tuba to me, a little less piggy but those same proportions: wide bell throat, tall top bow.

I didn't order any yet, but am thinking about it.  I wanna know how tall.  At the moment these are built to order in about 60 days.

Available cases include SKB or Winter hard case ($500-1000), Protec or Miraphone gig bag $300). Care kit and TU19 mouthpiece is included.
