Front ActionTuba Eb Sovereign Besson BE983

BE983 Sovereign Eb Tuba (Front action) Besson. The front action 983 is the preferred tuba for many soloists and chamber musicians, and is especially popular in the USA. It has a lightness of touch and a singing quality by design, granting the soloist and chamber musician complete freedom of expression. The new 984 model is also a four valve front action compensated tuba. Its playing position is the same as the orchestral tuba and enables the musician to play together with the trombone players in one section. After years of research and development, the new 984 model is the first to combine the historic warm and deep sound of the Eb tuba with the centred and focused precision of the F tuba. To achieve this, the 984 tuba is designed with a new receiver, a new leadpipe, a smaller and lighter bell, a new valve block position, new stays and more. This tuba is the first in its series to have a trigger on the 1st valve. The 984 model is a completely new model which Besson is proud to add to ist Sovereign range.
