3L

Our most popular orchestral model, this has a rounded cup, huge throat, and backbore and makes a rich organ-like sound. It seems to suffer fewer intonation problems than the VB 24AW, although strong chops are needed to maintain the pitch in the very top register, as the throat is so huge. Massive low register – this transforms the sound of E flat tubas into a really full-toned orchestral instrument. Also, a great band mouthpiece, as it makes a very ‘blending’ luxuriant sound. Excellent feeling of security with a well-defined inner edge to the rim. The gold plating of the rim and cup gives a luxurious look and more importantly, a great feel when playing, with the extra thick gold-plating giving superb flexibility.

Cup diameter: 31.5mm.
Rim width: 8mm.
Throat: 8.78mm.
Backbore: Large barrel. Large shank.
