A superior 4/4 size CC tuba with a hard case.
This package includes the 188-5U Series 5-Valve CC Tuba and a hardshell case.
The Miraphone 188-5U Series 5-Valve 4/4 CC Tuba was designed as a superior 4/4 size CC tuba for use as a solo horn, small ensemble and quintet horn, or in a full orchestra environment. The 188 CC Tuba features a nickel-silver leadpipe and a .772 inch bore with a slight conical design for a rich, dark orchestral sound plus a 17.7 inch upright bell to project through any ensemble. This tuba has been one of the favorite of bands, orchestras and individuals for over 50 years.
This is like the Pro 186 except the taper on the conical section grows faster and is larger and it gives it a bigger fuller and darker sound, more like a Kaiser tuba. Now with improved linkage and intonation, it is one of the best still. Heavier brass and valves make it one of the best tubas on the market for the money invested. Miraphone, quality throughout the line of instruments. The Miraphone 188-5U Series 5-Valve 4/4 CC Tuba includes a mouthpiece and is availabel in lacquer (188-5U) finish.
Miraphone took the best - and made it better. With the introduction of the 188 series Miraphone expanded on their already successful formula and improved the bell tapers and the valve action to get a little more sound out of the horn. They succeeded. This horn has a terrific sound and a beautiful color as well. At home in the orchestra, band or as a solo instrument, you will love the sound and feel of this horn.
