Stylish and Lightweight ABS Body
This instrument not only plays brilliantly, but also looks great! Featuring a sleek black body with white slides, this instrument weighs very little in comparison to a standard brass tuba. This is ideal for performers who would otherwise struggle to hold a brass tuba when stood for prolonged periods of time, as well as advanced players who are searching for a lightweight instrument for marching or for stage. The body of this instrument creates an authentic sound that is comparable to that of a brass tuba, meaning it can be easily used in ensembles as well as for individual performances.
Aluminium Rotary Valves and Adjustable Slides
The playLITE tuba gets its hybrid title from its great feeling, fast action rotary aluminium valves. The plastic moulded valve case has an aluminium collar built in to provide a tight and precise seal, meaning no air leakage and a better projection. As a result, the instrument is very hard wearing and will withstand the rigours of continued use. The aluminium valves are also easy to maintain as this instrument can be lubricated with any standard brass valve oil used on conventional instruments. The already accurate intonation of this tuba is aided further with fully adjustable valve slides, as well as a main slide for general tuning.
The playLITE tuba comes as a complete package so that the performer can get playing straight away. Included is a plastic mouthpiece that is suited to all-round playing. The instrument also comes in a canvas carry bag, which also has an external pocket and shoulder straps.

We are proud to offer these to our customers alongside hundreds of other well-known brands. Working closely with our carefully chosen manufacturers, we endeavour to produce reliable, great sounding instruments at a price that is accessible to all. Our musical equipment is made to the same exacting standards that you expect from other highly regarded brands - this is backed up by our standard 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.
Gear4music products are produced ethically and responsibly to meet the expectations of a caring world.
The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
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 5 years from the date of delivery.
- Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
- Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
- Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 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.
