Large tuba popular with intermediate and advanced students
Please select instrument options
The JP277 is a full-sized grand EEb tuba designed for intermediate and advanced students. Its four valve fully compensating system gives it excellent intonation throughout the complete chromatic pedal register without adding unwanted air resistance. These extra notes provide all the function needed to pass a grade 8 exam and play all standard orchestral repertoire with ease.
It is entirely constructed from hard-wearing yellow brass and features an enormous 19” bell with a reinforcing bell ring for confident and stable projection. The leadpipe is set lower down on the bell than most other tubas which improves the overall weight balance and makes it particularly suited to younger or shorter players.
Brass valve guides are much more durable than the plastic versions found in most student instruments and contribute to this tuba’s smooth responsive action. The tone is even in all registers – remarkably so considering the price – and the well thought out layout makes the JP277 an extremely comfortable instrument to play.
Every outfit includes a lightweight moulded case with wheels, strong YKK zips and plenty of pockets for sheet music and accessories. Cleaning materials and a silver plated JP611 mouthpiece is also supplied. This is a 4AL size deep cup with an internal diameter of 30.55mm designed to be a good all-round starter model.
