This tuba is also better than similar tubas from other companies in at it is built to last with robust nickel valve linkage, removable Z-valves for easy maintenance, nickel silver leadpipe to be rot resistant - and like all Wessex produced with care including triple polishing, double thickness silver-plating - and quality assured by Wessex team at factory before accepting.
