Until now, compensated BBb basses have been overly large for an average size person to comfortably hold and play, while at the same time a small bore for their overall size. This is a completely new design, based on a great bass of the past. The Wessex 'Excelsior' is only slightly larger in overall size than the popular compensated EEb tuba, but at the same time is large bore with true 5/4 bell throat for a broad contrabass tone. It is the compensated BBb bass as is should be!
