British F Tuba - TF458 HP
The type of tuba for which the Vaughan-Williams tuba concerto and all British orchestral music up until 1970’s was written. The British F has a unique lyrical tone like a bass euphonium combined with an incredible low register to be able to play the entire orchestral repertoire.
The new Wessex TF458HP combines all the beautiful characteristics of the originals, combined with lightweight construction from sheet brass for even better response.
