Tubas

Tama by Kanstul Marching Tubas offer rich sound and great projection in Eight different models. All of our tubas come with our ergonomic valve system, but Tama by Kanstul stands alone with the innovation of our Convertible Tubas. Available in all three sizes, (3/4, 4/4 & 5/4) the Tama by Kanstul Convertible Tubas provide true symphonic bass sound in BOTH concert and field applications! In less than 10 minutes, the instrument is transformed from a state-of-the-art Marching Tuba to a Symphonic Tuba worthy of any concert stage. Only the Tama by Kanstul Tuba inverts the valve section of the instrument, which makes the hand position equally comfortable in both concert and marching configurations. BBb 5/4 Size marching tuba offers full-bodied, rich sound and excellent projection and is also offered in a 4-valve configuration to allow for even greater intonation as well as expanding the range into the fully chromatic sub-contra depths of the sound canvas. Outstanding intonation is achieved with the tune-any-note feature.
