• F Tuba · Model 155

    Due to the incomparable and typical Alexander-sound and a relatively low weight, Alexander Tubas offer a very comfortable handling. Even the Kaisertuba (Model 164) weights only 9.75 kg which ranges distinctly below the usual weight classes.

    The Bb tubas (also available as C-instruments) are manufactured with four valves. Extra (auxiliary-)valves or individual pipe length for auxiliary valve are realizable on request.

    Model 155 is also available with an additional valve for lowering pitch by a perfect fifth after the main tuning slide.
