OVERVIEW

New Piston F Tuba!

The "Petruschka" was strictly assembled according to Miraphone's latest design guidelines consisting of a shorter, more compact construction blue print. The ergonomic proportioning with a height of only 33.5 inches makes for effortless handling and playability. The integration of a wide bore valve section lends symphonic potential and enormous projection to the slim-working "Petruschka" as evidenced by consulting the biggest concert halls. The conical taper of the piston valve system starts at 0.772'' and opens to a full 0.804'' through the 5th valve. The 1281 F tuba "Petruschka" is a true "all-rounder". She can be blended easily into all sorts of ensembles offering many options to the tubist, and performs effortlessly and determinedly in the biggest orchestras. For the soloist, this instrument is a dream come true leaving no wish unfulfilled.

The best F tuba on the market-period!

Comments about Miraphone 1281 Petruschka Series 5-Valve 5/4 F Tuba:

I recently bought a new Petruschka' F tuba from Brasswind, and having owned a number of F tubas--including the Miraphone 'Firebird' (which is a terrific instrument), I have to once again give kudos to Miraphone for yet again raising the bar for F Tubas. The new Miraphone Petruschka is simply the finest F tuba on the market today-period! Nothing else comes close in terms of beauty of sound,superb intonation, & ease of playing in all registers--including the low range. I can't find any fault with this instrument. Bravo Miraphone!
