Miraphone 187 Series 4-Valve BBb Tuba with Hard CaseThis package includes the Miraphone 187 Series 4-Valve BBb Tuba and a hardshell case.The Miraphone 187 4 Rotary Valve 4/4 BBb Tuba is an exceptional horn for ensemble work. The 187 features a .772 inch conical bore with a quicker expansion to allow the tuba to have a bigger, darker sound. The 187 also features a DVS (Direct Valve Stroke) valve linkage to provide quick, smooth action plus a nickel-silver bell wreath and leadpipe for centered tone and exact resonance. The Miraphone 187 is available in lacquer (187 4V) finish.This tuba has been one of the favorite of bands and individuals for over 50 years. The 187 is similar to the pro 186, except the taper on the conical section grows faster and larger, to produe a bigger, fuller and darker sound similar to that of a Kaiser tuba. Now with improved linkage and intonation, plus a body of heavier brass and valves makes the 187 one of the best tubas on the market for the money invested.

I am absolutely blown away by the playability, responsiveness and sound of this beautiful horn.
So why only four stars? Right off the bat, I couldn't put the mouthpiece in because of a significant amount of solder slag stuck a short distance inside the lead-pipe. It took some careful surgery with a round chainsaw file (which I was very nervous about doing on horn I had just spent over eight grand for) to rectify the problem. The horn literally blew me away once I fixed that little problem.
Tonight, for the first time, I just noticed a popped blister bubble about 1/4" across in the lacquer finish where the lead pipe support attaches to the bell. It sort of seems to me like Miraphone does a pretty good job of putting together a very well-designed horn, but is a little sloppy on the QC once the horn is put together. It's pretty obvious that nobody played it before me because the mouthpiece wouldn't seat if they had tried.
I know it sounds like I'm mad, but I'm just a little disappointed. It's still the nicest thing I have ever owned, and a big step up after playing borrowed horns for 49 years.
