Since I helped with the development of this instrument, I am a little prejudiced perhaps. However, I would not be playing this horn going on 19 years now if it did not "deliver the goods" professionally. I have used this for all of my extra tuba work for things like "Sym. Fantastique" and more, as well as all the Opera Orchestra work. It is my quintet horn, solo horn, tuba-euph. quartet horn, and jazz horn. Played it with Gunther Schuller/Dave Baker's "Smithsonian Masterworks Jazz Orchestra, and of course. it is my Brass Band of Battle Creek horn. Love the consistency of the sound from top to bottom and the fact that the sound carries so well, unlike many of the other Eb tubas which sound well, but don't always have the projection you want. Happy to talk about the Willsons with anyone!! For those who may not know; the reason for the two "Ls" comes from Willson's "parents": Willi Kurath, Sr. and Willi Jr. You'll love this horn for a lifetime.
The Willson 3400 FA5 is nothing short of phenomenal. A large dark sound is possible with the right mouthpiece, or a brighter soloist sound if you use a shallower cup. I think a bowl cup works better than a funnel mouthpiece, like a Helleberg and gives the horn "color". Exceptionally free blowing low register down to a pedal Bb. Best used in brass band as an Eb tuba, it is a very versatile horn with a good scale and lots of "core". I found the "C" (bass clef second space, "a" in treble clef music, fingered 1, 2) to be very sharp and third valve is a very good substitute fingering. This is the only note I found that needed a lot of adjusting if you want to use 1, 2 fingering and pull. 1 and 3 fingering can be used to great effect due to the vented first valve. Horn is very even across all valves and is a joy to play. Can be used as a solo instrument, in quintet work, small orchestra and brass band. Penetrating, solid sound. Beautiful instrument, very dense and physically heavy, buttery smooth piston valves. You will probably want to use a stand, but is possible to play with horn on a chair seat. Horn takes a lot of air, but is very fluid and projects well. Custom molded hard case is available for extra cost. Glenn Cronkhite has made a custom gig bag for me for this horn and is available for special order worth the $350 plus shipping to protect your investment. I would highly recommend this instrument to any advanced student or professional to include in his arsenal of equipment. Swiss made and shows it.
