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. 

Our BBb 5/4 5-Rotary-Valve Tuba ‘Luzern’ TB575 can be used to play any contrabass tuba or BBb bass music, and provide a superb broad tone under band or orchestra. 

We believe this is the best value, full size BBb tuba for sale and is sure to satisfy a player of any standard, from local community band level, to leading professional.

The ‘Luzern’ has hardened gold brass bell and comes with ‘Wessex Chief’ tuba mouthpiece, molded ABS latched case with wide placed robust wheels.
