The new Miraphone BBb and F Tubas

What began last year as a routine factory visit for brainstorming, became a public presentation this mid-November in Paris. Together with Dirk Hirthe, Miraphone has developed the new BBb tuba 5/4 “Hagen 496”, the BBb tuba 6/4 “Hagen 497” as well as the new 481 F tuba “Elektra”.

Our motto serves as our promise to you: Live the Perfection.

Dirk Hirthe, Honorary Professor for Tuba at the University of Music in Karlsruhe and tuba player for the Baden Staatskapelle, provided his high-caliber musicianship combining his own experience with his knowledge of theory towards the development of these instruments.

Professor Hirthe presented the prototypes of the three tubas within the framework of his master classes at the National Supérior Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris. The feedback offered a renewed, unequivocal evidence of Miraphone’s efforts towards the creation of a perfect world of sound.

More information regarding these instruments will be coming soon.

Here are pictures showing several design steps of the new F tuba.
