The tuba, which produces the lowest pitched sound of all brass instruments, brings an essential luster and sheen to any musical genre from jazz and classical through to pops.
All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. It’s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the ‘wants’ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.
Featuring a gorgeous, gleaming silver plated brass body, offset with polished brass gold lacquered valve caps, water keys and tuning slide ends, the exquisite Odyssey Premiere 'Eb' Tuba is luxurious in every detail, within sculpted design, masterful technology and performs as graceful as it looks.
With its generous 18.89"/480mm diameter bell and 0.688"/17.5mm bore sizes, the Odyssey Premiere 'Eb' Tuba is ideally suited as one of the principal instruments within in orchestras, brass bands and military bands, offering superb projection, sonic flexibility and agility.
Whilst tubas have always provided the low frequency foundation within ensembles and orchestras, the Odyssey Premiere 'Eb' Tuba is a popular choice with solo players.
Featuring a compensating 4 piston valve system, the Odyssey Premiere 'Eb' Tuba, allows the player to effortlessly reach lower octaves with superior intonation, whilst remaining warm and dynamic with a full bodied delivery throughout the higher registers.
Luxurious appointments also include a Denis Wick mouthpiece, regarded by musicians as arguably the worlds finest, hand-built to an extremely high standard, with meticulous attention paid to the mouthpiece rim for comfort and consistency.
Players from students to serious, professional musicians have commented on the excellent response and the high quality materials chosen in the construction of this beautifully built instrument.
As a company producing some of the world’s finest brasswind instruments, Odyssey recognise the fact that protection whilst travelling with a delicate instrument is paramount. To ensure players can maintain a high standard with this instrument, Odyssey has included a cleaning cloth, whilst a plush lined, robust zero-gravity ‘back pack’ hard foam, canvas covered case, with shoulder straps and wheels, takes all the worry out of commuting with such a delicate instrument.
