The Besson BE995 CC Tuba represents the first time Boosey & Hawkes has produced a front-action, 5-valve full size CC tuba. The BE995 is an exceptional professional instrument with a "four piston, one rotary" non compensating valve configuration. It is surprisingly lightweight, and produces a rich, colorful, clear and deep sound.
The Meinl Weston 2141 Eb tuba is an amazing instrument. At a 5/4 size with the large valve set this horn can produce a very strong sound in all registers. The 17.25" bell adds a lot of resonance as well. Add to this the 5 valve features and you have an unbeatable combination.
