best sounded horn i've played

Comments about Miraphone 1291-5VC Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

I have purchased this horn within the past week and have not set it down. It's difficult...in my time playing the tuba, i have never played an instrument that produces such a deep, rich sound as well as this one does. I was a little uneasy to make the transition from rotary valves to piston, but after playing the pistons (which feel like butter), I have no regrets at all. I would highly advise anyone who's interested to try this horn.

Comments about Miraphone 1291-5VC Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

I tried many different tubas before I tested and fell in love with the 1291. It may not be the largest tuba, but it has the sound of a massive 6/4.

Comments about Miraphone 1291-5VC Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

Within seconds (literally) of picking this up, I became hundred of times better. The high range sounds so beautiful, and the low notes are hit easily. The volume and resonation are astounding.

The best tuba I have ever played on!

Comments about Miraphone 1291-5VC Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

This tuba is awesome! I am playing the Vaughn Williams Concerto, and the tremelos have been impossible until I got this horn; and it's so smooth. The weight of the tuba and the 5/4 size makes the sound massive yet controlled. The response is amazing, and provides a good dynamic range. The fifth valve is a little stiff and being used to rotaries, my fingers are cramped, but if you have to choose a horn, choose this one!

Great sound, easy to play, responds well

Comments about Miraphone 1291-5VC Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

I like the Miraphone 1291 It is better than any other brand/model that I've played. Coming from a Cerveny 681, the 1291 has a bigger sound, it responds much more, and it is easier to play with a clean, open sound. I wasn't sure if I would like the piston valves, but since I have switched, I don't regret it. The only critique I have is that the hand position is a little awkward at first, but you get used to it. The 1291 is much easier to play. I was skeptical of the 5/4 compact, but it plays like any other 5/4. You can feel the vibrations through the horn as you play. This is a great tuba; definitely worth it!

Great TUBA!

Comments about Miraphone 1291-5VC Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

This is in my opinion the best all-around CC right now! It is great for any situation. I use this for chamber music, large orchestras and bands, and solo playing. The 1291 has an amazing low range and is very free-blowing in all registers. The sound that you make with tuba is wonderful and will force you to purchase it!

I couldn't be happier

Comments about Miraphone 1291-5VC Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:

Wow. This has got to be the best tuba I've ever played and I've played them all. I've played anything from Yamaha, Amati, King, Menial Weston, Conn, and Miraphone and this is an amazing horn. I started out looking for a horn about June of last year. And my private instructor had a Miraphone and I fell in love with it so I decided it would defiantly be a Miraphone no question. But then to decide whether to get a BBb or a CC because i played on BBb for 2years my instructor and everyone insisted me to get a CC because I can now play in symphonies and solo and anything else you can think of and honestly after playing my Miraphone the first night I was like wow....This horn is in a whole other league compared to the BBb tubas I've played in the past. Before I purchased my horn from a fellow off of Tubanet it was $6500 for a year old horn (silver) and a gig bag a silver polish and a tuba stand. And I got more then what I paid for I'll just put it that way. I mean intonation is almost perfect the low register(pedal notes) are so amazingly clear I've never played a horn with a low register like mine. But buy this horn itÆs MORE than worth the money.
