Meinl Weston CC Tuba
The new orchestral CC-Tuba 6450 "BAER"was developed together with Alan Baer, the Tubist with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Mr. Baer needed a large orchestral CC-Tuba that would exhibit the flexibility to create an immense amount of sound without sacrificing core or clarity. While on tour with the New York Philharmonic, Meinl-Weston brought Mr. Baer's ideas to reality and created this new model together with him.
