Ewan Easton – Tuba – Halle Orchestra
“The finish is excellent throughout the range and there is a very well planned and executed progression in quality and responsiveness from entry to professional level.” Grenville Moore from John Packer Ltd met up with Ewan Easton from the Halle to review the John Packer range of tubas. “This is a staggering tuba for the money. It has a good valve action, if a little noisy, with a lovely balance between weight and responsiveness. The full orchestral range is easily available on this instrument and the timbre throughout all ranges matches very well.” Ewan tried the new model and has praised the new right hand position, the quieter valve action and an even better finish; “This tuba will see any player to grade VIII. I would have loved to have one as a student.”
