OVERVIEW

Baer Production Model!

The Meinl Weston 6450 Baer Production Series 5-Valve 6/4 CC Tuba was developed together with Alan Baer, tubist with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, who played on Gronitz and Mirafone instruments, but needed a large orchestral CC-Tuba that would exhibit the flexibility to create an immense amount of sound without sacrificing core or clarity. It features a .748" bore with a .787" 4th valve bore and a .846" 5th valve bore plus a 18.89" upright bell. It also features bows and slides that are machine made using hydraulic molds for consistency and are slightly heavier metal than the handmade Baer Tuba. The Meinl Weston 6450 Baer Production Series 5-Valve 6/4 CC Tuba is available in silver finish.

This new orchestral Tuba was developed together with Alan Baer, the Tubist with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra who played on Gronitz and Mirafone, but needed a large orchestral CC-Tuba that would exhibit the flexibility to create an immense amount of sound without sacrificing core or clarity. While on tour with the New York Philharmonic, Meinl-Weston brought Mr. Baers ideas to reality and created this new model together with him.

Excellent BAT!

Comments about Meinl Weston 6450 Baer Production Series 5-Valve 6/4 CC Tuba:

The Production 6450 is a very versatile BAT. More than just a 6/4, it can be used in a variety of situations. It is not mouthpiece sensitive and can create a wide palette of sounds with changes in mouthpiece selection. The Production model retains the great intonation and response of the handmade, but offers a slightly more solid sound in some situations. An easy tuba to like and useful tool in my toolbox.
