Product Information

With the new “Elektra”, Miraphone has developed an F tuba that, due to its flexibility and versatility, has earned enthusiasm from soloists, symphony orchestras as well as from concert bands. The “Elektra” 481 embodies a centered, core-focused sound that remains unchanged at fortissimo as well as pianissimo. Obvious progress compared to its competitors has been made with the intonation of this F tuba. The unique design is such, that additional trigger and alternate fingerings are virtually no longer necessary for consistent pitch. The “Elektra” maintains an even and constant tone color with all fingering combinations. The tubist is now free to concentrate completely and undistractedly on the musical aspects of a performance.
