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.
Cerveny almost invented the tuba and they have perfected it over the past 180 years or so. This is another fine example of their work and the excellent craftsmanship. These horns have great sound color.
