For modern music, and playing the BBb bass part in brass bands, 5-valves are really required to cover the full chromatic range down to the fundamental.
Wessex Tubas has therefore re-designed the ‘Luzern’ with a 5th rotary valve tuned to a flat tone, as is standard on modern tubas – and operated by the thumb of the right hand.
