The JP078 Bb Tuba and ‘0’ series as a whole aims to provide well-constructed entry level student instruments at an attractive price/performance balance. This instrument clearly has a place in the education system and with training bands and works well not only as a student model but also for the more ‘mature’ player looking for a lightweight tuba. Its performance is comparable with that of the more expensive Yamaha mini tuba.

At only 33″ high, the JP078 is surprisingly small for a tuba being easily comparable to a euphonium in size, however despite is smaller form factor it still performs well in line with other much more expensive (and larger) models. With a compact 14″ bell, 2 water keys and reinforced bell ring, the instrument boasts all the expected components that one would expect from larger models.

Having been reviewed by some of the most renowned players in the industry, the instrument has been described as “light and responsive”, “well designed” and as having an “excellent” finish. For full reviews see the reviews tab below.

The JP078 Bb Tuba is supplied with an entry level JP611 mouthpiece and high quality lightweight case featuring wheels, YKK zips throughout and useful side storage pocket.

Manufactured to a high quality standard as is expected with all JP Instruments, The JP078 Bb Tuba is guaranteed for 12 months against faulty manufacturing or materials.
