The JP078S Bb Tuba aims to provide a well-constructed entry level student instrument at an attractive price that is lightweight and smaller than standard, but also with good performance.
This instrument clearly has a place in the education system and with training bands, and works well not only as a student model but also for the more ‘mature’ player looking for a lightweight tuba. Its performance is comparable with that of more expensive mini tubas.
At only 33" high, the JP078S is surprisingly small for a tuba being easily comparable to a euphonium in size, however despite is smaller form factor it still performs well in line with other much more expensive (and larger) models. With a compact 14" bell, 4 water keys and reinforced bell ring, the instrument boasts all the expected components that one would expect from larger models.
