3L Our most popular orchestral model, this has a rounded cup, huge throat and backbore and makes a rich organ-like sound. It seems to suffer fewer intonation problems than the VB 24AW, although strong chops are needed to maintain the pitch in very top register, as the throat is so huge. Massive low register – this transforms the sound of E flat tubas into a really full-toned orchestral instrument. Also a great band mouthpiece, as it makes a very ‘blending’ luxuriant sound. Excellent feeling of security with a well-defined inner edge to the rim.
Cup diameter: 31.5mm.
