What They Play
The EBC836 is a 6/4 size tuba inspired by the legendary York orchestral CC tuba. This large tuba is at home on stage with a symphony orchestra or concert band, in the pit of an opera or ballet orchestra, and is nimble enough to play in small chamber ensembles. The next generation 6/4 tuba has arrived!
- Key of CC
- 6/4 size tuba with 20" bell
- Four front-action stainless steel pistons through a semi-stepped bore
- Right thumb-operated 5th rotor valve (a flat whole step) through an .850" bore
- Exquisitely finished in either clear lacquer, silver-plate, or in raw brass
