Based on the design of a German classic, this is an excellent 5-valve professional CC tuba which is gaining increasing use by professionals. Great for orchestral playing, or putting a real foundation under a wind band, many buyers think it is even better than the German original.Specifications: Bell: 450mm (17.6″) Bore: 19.5mm (0.77″) Height: 1000mm (39.4″) Nickel inner and outer tuning slides Comes with foam case with wheels and mouthpiece Model: CB-410
In 2013 a blind test was conducted in US University comparing the Wessex CC to to Miraphone on which it is based. You can read the results here Dudley – MM Tuba Test Project
Feedback in performance
I have received universal good feedback from conductors playing this CC including compliments on its tone, spot on intonation and its presence in the orchestra without overpowering. For myself behind the bell, this tuba is a real pleasure to play. It is quite the equal of German made CC costing three times and more the price.
