"Handy" Smaller Tuba!
This instrument is capable of existing on two worlds. It is an excellent advanced student/intermediate horn and can also serve well as a professional instrument in many cases. This compact 4/4 tuba has a deceptively HUGE sound and great projection. With the recent change in the bell from 15.75" to 17.75" the depth of sound has increased nicely.

Comments about Meinl Weston 18 Handy Series 4-Valve 4/4 BBb Tuba:
I used to play on a 5/4 size horn, but I play a lot of gigs that require running around. So I was shopping for a smaller tuba when I first saw this one. To my surprise, you don't lose any volume or tone for the 3/4 size. It plays just like a larger horn, but with a brighter sound. It is now my only BBb horn. I have no regrets buying this tuba, and I definitely recommend it to any player who is often on the go.
