The California-Solo is a large front-piston American style F tuba ideal for playing in orchestra, in brass quintet, or for solo use with a full rich and clear tone and good response across all registers. 

The TF555HP is all hand-made instrument, using hand-hammered sheet brass in the Wessex own high-grade workshop, for a lightweight and really responsive tuba. Every one is carefully individually quality checked and play tested by a professional to ensure it is a pleasure for whoever becomes its eventual owner. 

The California-Solo is an F tuba which will be equally suitable for use by a top professional tuba player, or an advanced student.
