bfman's review (B&S - Tuba Contrebasse 3103kl Sib)

By bfman, 21/07/2008
Bb Tuba (Bb)
- 4 pallets online
- Bore 19 mm,
- Bell 480 mm
- Weight 10Kg
I have used it for 3 years, n'tant not the first to use it, I have some bumps rcupr pod female teachers to use all the capabilities of the instrument .
I love this tuba for sound, with a few years derrire me a good mouth and throat, we get a big sound, small Youngblood concertos (the group uses a Souba), through the Batterie Fanfare or harmony, it goes everywhere, of course, requires that the musician is able!
the problem with this or my tuba tuba (as it starts be old (rinsed)) it is hard to master especially for suppleness and large intervals. I do not know how his new MODELS, but mine the old type of pallets and pallets of this type is quite noisy and often blocks (but I can not maintain them, and the tuba is old, has come to be a can?).
up from the pallets difficult, how can you have a Bb tuba better than a? I ask myself!
fanfare for the battery I find it great and I never tire of it all, with this big flag and it appears that overall quality great.
Notice to awkward, it's a big tuba trs made with a layer of copper fine enough, so it is very easy damaging, I advise you to rev attention as a jewel as a must the tui being protected with a rigid or so for the use of bus dplacements ingnieusit prserver for shock and other heavy items.
prt by the tuba my music, I intend to take a fa of the same type, but if I had to take a B flat and if I could afford, so I will take it, or else one of the m I like that.
but above all I recommend you try before you buy, especially for such instruments and seek advice from professionals who are mostly more tuba derrire them.
I put 9 but I think 10 for tuba in state ban, not for mine is old.

The ultimate BBb Tuba (Besson - BE994 Sovereign BBb Tuba)

By themaddog, 11/10/2011
As my review's titles states, I consider the Besson Soverign to be the ultimate BBb tuba. Technically a 4/4 scale instrument, it nearly large enough to be considered 5/4 (oversize), so I would recommend this for a similarly large scale player. I played this instrument when I was an athletic 145 lbs. and 5' 10" and would recommend this instrument to someone of similar height. The tuba has four valves, but unlike the one pictured, my Sovereign's fourth valve was upright next to the other three valves. The tone is very sweet yet bellowing, with correct breath control this tuba can easily fill up an auditorium.

The valves and slides all provide excellent response. A straight-mute is also available for this tuba for jazz music. When I played it regularly, I performed both wind ensemble and jazz music, and I felt this instrument excelled at playing both.

This tuba really is in a class by itself, as it is a BBb tuba, yet usually this level of quality and workmanship goes towards producing concert and Eb tubas. The only negative aspect of this instrument is its high cost, but that is a tradeoff to being such an incredible instrument. This tuba was instrumental into getting me into college in spite of relatively poor high school grades. With it I played at the district level and was asked to audition for the all-state band, but unfortunately, due to some health complications, I was unable to achieve the level of success that I had hope. I can assure the reader that this has nothing to do with the quality or merits of this tuba.

This instrument was purchased from Dillon Music in New Jersey. If you are a tuba enthusiast and are looking for a great tuba, I highly recommend paying them a visit, as they have a large inventory of tubas.

How long have you use it? What thing do you like most and least? Have you tried many other models before buying it? How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ... *dropoff Window
