However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Improved Range & Greater Dexterity

With a traditional 4 Piston Valve Compensating System, the Coppergate enables you to play in lower octaves, and use less complicated fingerings, leading to a better sound and easier playing experience. This system has an improved range and greater dexterity than a 3 valve setup, with far superior intonation, sound and overall playability.

Responsive & Warm Mellow Sound

The Coppergate Bb Tuba has a medium sized bore (19mm) which requires less air to play than a large bore tuba, making this instrument very responsive, perfect for advancing tuba players. Yellow brass construction on the bell ensures good acoustic properties and helps the Coppergate produce a warm mellow sound.

Built To Last

Corrosion resistant Cupronickel tuning slides and stainless steel pistons guarantee that this tuba is designed for repeated use in a variety of environments and will give you the same high quality sound for years to come.

Ready To Use In Marching/Brass Bands

Complete with a hard case with wheels, this tuba is ideal for use in Brass Bands. The mouthpiece of the Coppergate connects directly to a straight lead pipe; a very comfortable design for Tuba's of this size. The durable case ensures that your new instrument will be thoroughly protected as you travel to and from performances, and the wheels mean that you will not have to struggle with the weight for the instrument.
