W 403

Bb- Wagnertuba

The corpus of the single Bb Wagner tuba has the same size as our double tuba. With its low weight the W 403 is easy playable and adapts very well in orchestra with its soft sound.

The low range is also playable without problems and has a safe response.

Like all of the Ricco Kühn Wagner tubas the intonation fits in every situation.

Technical data

  • 4 valves
  • bell size 260mm (10.24 in.)

W 404

F- Wagner tuba

You can compare the bell size of this F model with our double Wagner tubas. But in difference to them it sounds more powerful especially in the low range. Playing pp sounds more gloomy but also clear and safe in high range. In a set with three double tubas, the F tuba has the sound for the low range which fits.

Technical data

  • 4 valves
  • bell size 260mm (10.24 in.)

W 405

F/Bb- Double Wagner tuba

The model W 405 is a real "horn"-tuba. We optimized intonation and response with complex measurement technology. The slim bell causes a carrying sound over the complete range. You can compare the resistance with the resistance of a horn, so it is not as difficult as you may think to change between horn and our double Wagner tuba.

This is the current best selling model of the “Ricco Kühn” Wagner tubas.
