“From the excellent range of Wessex instruments, I have had the opportunity to test the following instruments:
“All, I find wonderful instruments at very reasonable prices; both sound quality and manufacturing are very successful.
“As I usually play in Bb, I have the excellent Travel Tuba “Mighty Midget” for my trips, classes, essays and some performances. Despite its small size, it has a wide and round sound that astonishes listeners.
“Hopefully soon I will have in my possession other Wessex instruments, to support me in developing my professional career as an interpreter and teacher.”
