Inspired by the once popular American ‘Monster Bass’ Eb tubas of the past, the team at Wessex Tubas is delighted to introduce our new TE665HP ‘Tubby’ Eb tuba for sale which has much improved intonation against those tubas of the past. This is a modern 5-valve Eb tuba with ‘York’ sound. 

It Is ideal for those tubists who prefer playing Eb tuba, but want to produce a beautiful rich broad tone. 

This tuba can easily produce the sound of a 4/4 CC tuba, whilst still possessing the agility found in an Eb tuba.

The new TE665HP is entirely hand-made from sheet brass in our high-grade workshop, meaning that, although big for an Eb tuba, it is surprisingly light to carry.

    Gig bag size: B700

    Ordering an available gig bag, together with your instrument, will save you shipping costs!
