New Miraphone Tuba!
The CC tuba 291 "Bruckner" was planned and developed to be a consequent complement to the 1291 series of Miraphone CC tubas. The classical original model for all contrabass tubas in compact styling has been the 191 BBb tuba which served also as the sample for the Miraphone instrument-smiths in the making of the "Bruckner". This 5/4 CC tuba (as well as the 1281 "Petruschka") inherited the asymmetrically bent top branch from the 1292 "New Yorker" front-action CC tuba. This time the concept, however, was to connect the traditional sound of German contrabass tubas in BBb with the popular characteristics of a C pitch wished for by the brass sections of international orchestras.
The successful combination of the wide flared 18.5'' bell, the conical bore of the 5th valve machine (0.803'' ” 0.835'') and the agile valve action will immediately grab the undivided attention of the tuba tester. The clear, full sound and instant response coupled with a healthy portion of acoustic feedback to the player earns the 5/4 CC tuba Model 291 "Bruckner" a special reputation among the leading American CC contrabass tubas to-date. The 291 out of the Miraphone Instruments family will undoubtedly lend the CC tuba world a genuine novelty achieving new heights and dimensions.

Comments about Miraphone 291 Bruckner Series 5-Valve 5/4 CC Tuba:
I made the switch from my 202N BBb St. Petersburg to the 291 Bruckner because I decided to pursue a career and degree in performance, and I'm so glad I did. The sound and response is amazingly clear and concise, and my applied lessons instructor calls it the Rolls Royce of tubas. The low register sounds and speaks with ease, thanks to the large bore, and the high register is still clear and whole. It's not too big for my tuba/euphonium quartet, either!
