Lightweight perfect for rehearsing

I usually play sousaphone. But the same is quite unwieldy at rehearsals. This plastic bass is perfect for this. Trains are smooth and even needed some tough grease. Valves run perfectly. Response down to low G is really good. Great the quart valve! Above middle C the response decreases in places. Sound of course rather muffled, but quite ok. I do not use the plastic mouthpiece, although that works quite well. Nice gig bag. Retaining strap for instrument was not included, but is also completely unnecessary. The thing is really fun. Especially because it is so incredibly handy and light. I would buy it again anytime. Concerns ev, if on 443 Hz is played (bad habit!) We tune on 440, and there the tuning slide is almost completely in. With the bass, however, you can bend a lot with the approach.
Big surprise!

I bought the tuba as a light second instrument and now play it as a first instrument. So surprisingly full and rich is the sound, the tuba can keep up without compromise with my Besson. No problems in ensemble, very accurate tuning, notes snap cleanly into place. Perhaps it needs a little more mouth and air work than my brass instrument. It's a pity that the thumb ring is so sparse, the case is a bit too bulky for that. But these are little things. Great, full-fledged Tuba Light at a good price!

BONJOUR IL EST TRES BEAU LEGER MAIS POUR UNE BASS LE SON EST UN PEUT FAIBLE

After more than 30 years of intensive playing on a classic brass tuba, I bought this plastic tuba two months ago due to an acute back problem and have tested it extensively since then. The decisive factor for the purchase was the low weight of only 4.4 kg, so that I could play again immediately. And I am very positively surprised by the musical qualities of this instrument. Had I somehow feared the sound of a vuvuzela, the tuba convinced from the first moment with a rich, full tuba sound and a good response of the notes. The sound is hardly distinguishable from that of a brass tuba.

The advantages of this instrument are
- the weight (for back injuries, mobile use, comfort)
- the price (I would recommend the tuba especially for young beginners)
- the insensitivity (finally a shooters' party without a brass damage)
- the sound (sounds really like a tuba)

The disadvantages:
- the attached strap loops don't fit for standard straps or carrying harnesses (or I'm too stupid)
- the holder for the marching fork is not available (very bad for mobile use)
- the thumb latch doesn't look really stable (but it is removable and a tube can be used for it)
- the water key also makes a very unstable impression (better take out the tuning slide and empty it)
- the quality of workmanship is acceptable, but I had problems with one valve (thread, slight leakage)
- the supplied case is completely oversized and useless for the size and the inflexibility of the instrument.

All in all though, a great instrument. The disadvantages can be reworked / supplemented / bypassed, so only one star deduction. Particularly annoying, however, is the case. If the tuba alone fits easily into a small car, you need a full-grown station wagon for the case. A delivery without case for a cheaper price or with a matching bag at the same price would be desirable here.
Comment of Musikhaus Kirstein:

Wir werden an den angesprochenen Punkten arbeiten. An dem Punkt Marschgabelhalterung und Trageringe arbeiten wir bereits mit dem Hersteller. Den Koffer haben wir bewusst gewählt, als zusätzlichen Stoßschutz bei Bläserklassenkindern.
