A great investment!

Comments about Meinl Weston 5450 Thor Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

After playing a PT-6P for 8 years, I switched over to the Thor. My first experiences were fantastic. The horn is very free blowing, and the intonation is an improvement over the PT. This instrument has a great low register and projects very well. I have had this horn for a year now, and love every minute with it.A great horn for any application! Buy it! You won't regret it!

No words can describe this horn!

Comments about Meinl Weston 5450 Thor Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

I recently purchased this horn without having any major experience playing on it. The horn literally plays itself out of the box. The low register is just insanely loud and resonant, the mid register is nice and smooth, and the high register just sings without any strain at all. This may be an expensive horn, but I guarantee that any person who purchases this horn will not be disappointed.

Comments about Meinl Weston 5450 Thor Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

Intonation is immaculate in all registers. Very free blowing and easy to play. Huge dark rich sound. Power when you need it and a beautiful dolce too. The best horn I have ever played, blows the PT-6 out of the water.

What a beast!!

Comments about Meinl Weston 5450 Thor Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

This horn is FANTASTIC!! The lower range is simply incredible, the mid range is smooth and silky, and the upper range has a brightness that's unmatched. The intonation has been great, and all the slides are easily accessible. This horn made me sound better without any effort right out of the case, and it has made me want to practice even more! I bought mine sight unseen, and have been very impressed. Have no hesitations buying this horn. You honestly won't be disappointed.
