This 4/4 tuba would work for a good 4-valve beginner horn at the elementary and middle school level. Would also work as a good small tuba for an older person looking for a lighter horn to play with a quintet, small group or Dixie.
The Amati name alone tells you that this is a great value for the money. An excellent bass trombone for someone moving from tenor trombone. This has a beautiful sound and a slightly smaller bore to help get more focus.
