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.

Big and Versatile Sound

The Coppergate C Tuba has a full and deep sound, which is suited to many modern and romantic style classical music, where a tuba foundation is very important. As well as this, the instrument is also useful for wind ensembles and brass ensembles. The large 450mm bell diameter and 19.5mm bore make it perfect for deep and mellow playing, even at the loudest volumes.

Five Valve System

In order to maintain perfect intonation through the range of the tuba (particularly in the lower register), a five valve system has been used. While it is quite common place to include a 4th valve, which acts the same as pressing down valves 1 and 3, the fifth valve acts the same as pressing down valves 2 and 3. By reducing the amount of turns in the tubing that the air has to go through, the instrument becomes easier to play and keep in tune.

Everything You Need

The tuba doesn't just come on its own. Included with this instrument is a mouthpiece that enables you to get playing straight out of the box. As well as this, a moulded hard foam case has been included, meaning the instrument can be stored and carried safely.
