I found the 4 valve 1290 a perfect horn. It produces a nice big and full sound. I have had no tuning issues with this horn, it is very well tuned. No doubt you will fall in love with this horn. There is no doubt Miraphone is a top line. I have also played on the 191 but I would prefer the 1291 over the 191. The valves move very well. You will never regret buying this tuba.
I purchased a 5-valve 1291 from WWBW about two years ago and have found it to be a fantastic instrument. With the available fingering combinations, I can play the entire range in tune-without pulling any slides! The tone is full and mellow, and the low range is tremendous. The 1291 came with a Miraphone TU33 mouthpiece. However, I find that the slightly smaller TU29 mouthpiece allows me to play a bit nimbler, and I can still reach down for the pedal B-flat.
I've found the 5-valve Miraphone 1291 to be a fantastic tuba. Its tone is full and rich--everyone wants to know what it is when they first hear it. Its intonation is right on, and it has a tremendous low register. If you want to, you can really get everyone's attention with this horn! The 1291 came with a Miraphone TU33 mouthpiece, but I like the Miraphone TU29 somewhat better. I can be a bit more nimble with the slightly smaller mouthpiece. If you select this horn, you won't be disappointed.
My 5 valve 1291 is the best Bb horn I have played on. It has very even low and high registers, and I have no difficulty getting the horn to do what I want. The tuning slides are easy to reach, water drains well, and the valves as well as the day I bought the horn 2 years ago. I have no problem getting great timbre from this horn with my PT 44 mouthpiece.
I would suggest this horn to anyone looking to purchase a top-quality Bb tuba.
I was a little apprehensive about ordering this Miraphone tuba because the local maintenance shop said they were fragile and that they typically require a lot of repairs. I spoke with the contractor that services the Naval Academy and Coast Guard Academy horns. He stated the current models are much more rugged than they used to be. Based on that recommendation I ordered the 1291 for uses here in Alaska. So far it has been virtually flawless when operating in sub-zero temperatures after being dumped out of bush plane baggage compartments, etc. The jam nut on the thumb ring comes loose pretty easily with temperature changes, but a little Threadlock got that under control.
My one major problem was that the generic MTS case that was supposed to fit the 1291 actually didn't! It would have crushed a couple of sections of tubing plus the rotary valve linkage if I had forced it closed. Plus it had Fiberglass lamination flaws that ran several long glass splinters into my fingers when I handled it. I ended up shipping it back and paying nearly double for the Miraphone factory case and waiting forever for it, but in the end it was certainly worth every penny to upgrade to the right case.
