The Sovereign 981: the classic 19-inch bell model with the ‘John Fletcher’ leadpipe.
The glorious and famous tone of this instrument is the sound you can hear in the world’s leading brass and wind bands, who put their trust in these tubas, noted also for their free-blowing quality and projection.
The intonation of this instrument allows the organ-likes sounds of the great bands to be built on these foundations.
Many orchestral players and brass quintet tubists feel the richness of sound coupled with their dynamic range.
This makes this tuba the absolute first choice to do their job.
