The tones from this tuba are very pleasantly centred and focused.
In this model, the Willson developers have positioned the fourth valve closer to the musician. The fourth valve can thus be reached and pressed very comfortably.
Added to this are a purity of sound and outstanding intonation that make this tuba indispensable in any orchestra or brass band.
