Tubas Piston


JP077 Eb Mini 3 valve Tuba

The JP077 Eb Tuba and ‘0’ series as a whole aims to provide well-constructed entry level student instruments at an attractive price/performance balance. 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 many more expensive mini tubas.

At only 31″ high, the JP077 is surprisingly small for a tuba being easily comparable to a euphonium in size, however despite its smaller form factor it still performs well in line with other much more expensive (and larger) models. With a compact 12 3/4″ bell, 2 water keys and reinforced bell ring, the instrument boasts all the expected components that one would expect from larger models.

Having been reviewed by some of the most renowned players in the industry, the instrument has been described as “pleasantly responsive”, “solidly built” and as having an “excellent” finish. For full reviews see the reviews tab below.

The JP077 Eb Tuba is supplied with an entry level JP611 mouthpiece and high quality lightweight case featuring wheels, YKK zips throughout and useful side storage pocket.
