Decent Concert band setting horn

Comments about Miraphone 191 Series 5/4 BBb Tuba:

If you're a band director looking to get a new Bb tuba for their highschool or college this is an all around great Tuba for the price. I would also suggest the miraphone 1291 simply for the piston valves, making it a lot easier for maintenance. Or if you've got a little more money and better then average players, the miraphone 1292 C Tuba is also a great Horn. Be mindful that this is a large horn to carry around so if you do go with it you'll get that big sound, but your tubists will also have their hands full! - personal experience. I hope this was helpful for you.

Just the Right Tuba

Comments about Miraphone 191 Series 5/4 BBb Tuba:

I purchased this tuba to replace my older tuba. This tuba has an excellent response, and the tone quality has impressed every tuba player I've crossed paths with. I would recommend on getting the 5th valve if you're planning or already are playing in college or professionally. It does allow for extra alternate fingering options and some notes can be tuned easier. Altogether, I this is an amazing tuba. Very well built, and it will last for years.

Great tuba for everyday use (+ more!)

Comments about Miraphone 191 Series 5/4 BBb Tuba:

I've had this tuba for about 3 years now, and I absolutely love it. I visited the South Bend store and tried many others, but this fit the best. It has a very warm sound that blends extremely well with other tubas, as well as sounding great all alone. I have had little issues with intonation, but really nothing to complain about. I am a short/petite-statured woman and this "piggie" is perfect because of it's compact style. I have the 4-valve model-- the 5th valve tubing seemed to make the tuba very top-heavy and awkward-- but I can still hit those super-low pedals. Great instrument!

AWESOME!

Comments about Miraphone 191 Series 5/4 BBb Tuba:

This is the Greatest Tuba I have ever played. I purchased this in March 06 and have not regretted it. It has a full, vibrant and resonating tone...very pure. In addition to this, it has the extra 5th rotor valve which is EXTREMELY rare and handy if you are playing any peddle tones. It does require some moderate tuning, but overall is very in tune with it self. It requires a lot less air than some tubas and puts out an awesome, unique sound that carries. When purchasing, the case is separate and worth it. For the best results, go to the store in Southbend, IN and try before you buy! This makes all the difference in the world. If you have any questions or would like pictures, please e-mail me.
