The most powerful and responsive Miraphone 1290 Series Tuba yet.
The Miraphone 1293 Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba is the newest edition to the popular 1290 series from Miraphone. It features a big 19.685" bell and larger 5th valve than previous models. These changes make the tuba more responsive and extremely powerful in the low register. The 1293 comes with both a medium and medium large leadpipe for a customizable feel and sound.

I recently bought the 1293 as my first tuba for college. After playing multiple different horns of the same caliber (inlcuding the Miraphone Bruckner and both the rotary and piston PT-20's), I found that the 1293 had the best overall sound in all registers and provided a certain punch in the sound which I find desirable in a tuba. The horn resonates on its own and is extremely smooth in all registers. The only problem I have with this horn is that tuning in the second valve tends to be flat (very much so), even when the valve is all the way in. This is not much of a problem, however, because the intervals are wide enough to where you can lip notes in any direction to tune. This is a great horn that has its place in both large orchestras and small ensembles (such as quintets and tuba-euphonium quartets). Extremely fantastic overall and definitely worth the price.
