For trusted, powerful, resonant tubas look no further than the world’s largest tuba and baritone manufacturer – V. F. Cerveny & Sons. Vaclav Frantisek Cerveny began making instruments in 1842 in Hradec Kralove. A good friend of the inventor of the saxophone, Adolphe Sax, Cerveny’s craftsmanship exhibits a rich knowledge and understanding of instruments. He began by making B & C tubas and quickly expanded to F tubas, baritones, and other models.
