Product InformationThis Besson 982 Sovereign tuba is a great option for Brass Band or Orchestral players alike. It has a powerful, full sound with plenty of punch.
This tuba is in great condition, the silver plate shows some signs of wear in the usual places. The 982 model features carriage rings, and this tuba has had an extra ring fitted, making it very straight forward and secure to use with a harness type strap (all 3 rings circled in extra images). This is an ideal instrument for use outside, although it is equally well suited to the concert hall.
The instrument is supplied with the original hard Besson case which has some minor scratching on the outside but is otherwise in excellent condition. Included is a Denis Wick 5 mouthpiece which will suit the bore of the tuba well, giving a very bright and free sound, particularly in the upper register of the instrument.
As with all our second hand Brass Instruments this instrument has been fully checked and set-up in our workshops prior to sale and comes with a 6 month warranty.
