If you want to view and try our tubas, we will have trade stand at the National Brass Band Championships at Cheltenham in September where the compensated euphonium, EEb bass and BBb bass should all be available. We are also hoping to have prototype of an Eb mini-tuba which will be invaluable as a practice instrument for the dedicated bass/tuba player, or to start children on bass.
