Here you will find the largest selection of professional tubas on the west coast.  We specialize in craftsmen built tubas from Germany and the US.  We stock the entire line of Miraphone tubas, including the new Bruckner, Firebird, Petruschka, and Bel Canto models.  We also stock selected tubas from Alexander and Gronitz.

Kanstul Musical Instruments in Anaheim, California has a new line of hand made tubas, mostly made in the 1930's style of the classic York tubas.  These must be tried to be believed.  Kanstul's line includes several sizes of BBb, CC, Eb, and F tubas.  They make the finest contrabass trombone, and a cimbasso is in the works.

With most tubas starting at $6000 and up, we think there is demand to offer some quality lower priced models.  We plan to offer selected Jupiter tubas from Taiwan, which start in the range of $3000-4000 including case.  Please call for more information and availability, and to let us know of your interest.

By special order, we're glad to source some fine tubas from Josef Lidl and Cerveny, both made in the Czech Republic, and Yamaha tubas from Japan. 

Euphonium players can find instruments staring at $1900 from Yamaha, and professional compensating models from Kanstul and Miraphone.  Other models such as Besson and Willson are by request; please call for a quote.  We also have a new fifth rotary valve conversion kit for the Yamaha 321 euphonium made by Stauffer brass.

Orchestral tenor tubas with rotary valves are occasionally in stock from Miraphone and Alexander.  Cimbassos are available form several makers, most notably G&P in Italy.

All our instruments are play tested and tuned up before sale.  We offer a trial period and refund or exchange.  We are your liaison for factory warranty service and we can arrange repair or restoration of your instrument.

We carry the finest soft cases for tuba.  These are made in Berkeley, California by Glenn Cronkhite.  Hard cases are available from SKB and MTS in three sizes.
