Call for Price

The Besson BBb 4 valve compensated tuba is being considered as the "fondamental base of each brass band". This large size tuba is well-known for the real "sound-wall" he is able to create on which the whole orchestra can build on.

The BE994 BBb tuba retains the 483mm-19" inch diameter bell putting the player completely in touch with this instrument's superb sound. From "pianissimo to the strongest fortissimo" Besson gives the musician an instrument that is unequaled in quality and performance. The BE994 tuba demonstrates perfect intonation throughout the registers and provides an immense dynamic range and powerful low register.
