Marching through the streets playing your tuba should always be a comfortable experience. When you’re in charge of the booming low end, a tuba designed to fit your body and allow you to move is ideal. These instruments are big, bold and extremely powerful, so it’s important to choose one that not only fits great but sounds great too.
Marching brass tubas are specifically constructed to be easy to carry. This is an important distinction as if you purchase a band tuba instead, you won’t enjoy the same ease of use. From the curve of the bell to the placement of the keys, marching brass tubas give you the ability to march alongside your bandmates and not skip a note.
Tubas are separated based on skill level. If you’re just starting out options like the Amati ABB 233 are ideal. This student level tuba has the same amount of power as more advanced models but features a compact design that can easily accommodate younger musicians. The precise sound it offers gives the student the chance to hear the notes just as they were intended.
If you’re in a military or college band, an intermediate level marching tuba may be your best bet. Convertible options like the Jupiter 380 offer a design that works in both the marching setting and in a sit down orchestra setting. If you want to start your career in tuba playing, this is a great option. If instead you’re a dedicated marching brass player, a selection like the King 1151 has an ergonomic valve section and top projection qualities that can easily fit in a marching arrangement and keep you comfortable during long practices.
Professional marching band musicians will find the deluxe options available pretty impressive. Options like the Adams MTB1 or the Tama by Kanstul KTB54C have extras like lighter weight materials, hand crafted components and ‘tune any note’ slides. Investing in one of these options gives you the ability to truly take your practice further with great clarity and resonance.
Marching brass tubas are the foundation of any band. Being the lowest voice in the group means you need a powerful instrument to make yourself heard. Choosing a marching tuba ensures you’re comfortable and heard clearly over the cheers of your fans.
