The Bubbie mini tuba is only 21″ high (smaller than euphonium), has 9″ bell and weighs under 7 lb.
This is a well made quality instrument. It has non-corrosive nickel silver leadpipe and both nickel inner and outer tuning slides for smooth action with gold brass body to give a rich tone.
This Bubbie mini tuba tuba is every bit as good as a branded model costing six times the amount.

Thank you very much i just received it and it is really genius! I played it for 8h+ a day since ive got it its really a powerfull instrument and i LOVE the resitance it give (im a fan of compact tuba because of this). And for playing modern video game music (bass tuba or contrabass trombone part) it plays perfectly during very brassy pass. It is one of the best product i own. Now i can play anywhere. THANK YOU MERCI ARRIGATO!!!!!!

I’m impressed by the level of craftsmanship, which I think is improving every year and gradually laying to rest the old opinions about “Chinese Instruments

A tuba as portable as a trumpet? It is a reality now!

Basically it is a very good instrument. I enjoy carrying around less weight and my orchestra players have commented positively… I find that I have an upper body and head freedom which I do not have with my Yamaha, which rests on my lap and the mouthpiece position is determined for me. I find eye communication with the conductor much better with the Bubie. The rotary valves are good to use…

An absolute ‘God-send’ on those days on tour when you can’t get to your instrument, and need to practice to keep your chops in! When I practiced in the hotel room with a mute,the violinist next door was louder!!!!
