Created in collaboration with Paul Riggett of Sterling Brass, the JP379 represents a fusion of professional level Sterling components and design with the affordability and durability normally associated with the JP brand. The JP379FF is suitable for any professional player looking for a slightly smaller bass tuba to work in lighter orchestral projects and ensemble/chamber groups. This tuba sings in the upper register and really speaks in the lower register making this an all-round fantastic instrument.
