    Of all the variety, sizes and brands tubas I’ve owned an/or played in my life, this Bohm Meinl 5500B is without a doubt my favorite.That’s true for many reasons; athough typical full size BBb, it’s slender in appearance, comfortable when carrying and playing. Most of all it’s a very attractive horn. As for playing, it has outstanding clear responsive tone with excellent range with lower range qualities of a much larger bore horn. Whether part of a lower brass section in concert or featured in solo work, I’m very proud of this instrument and whenever the opportunity I love to show off its fine qualities.
