The orchestral CC tuba 3225 “Ursus” was developed together with New York Philharmonic orchestra tubist Alan Baer especially for flexibly handling a repertoire that is requiring a more compact instrument than the 6/4 size CC tuba 6450 “Baer”.
This is more than half of a Baer – the new smaller Meinl Weston CC tuba for the orchestra with the model number MW3225 is called «Ursus» and is a 4/4 size version of the MW6450.
