The F tuba 1281 Petruschka is a real "multi-talent", easily lending itself to participation in every ensemble and offering all a tuba player could hope for, even large orchestra settings.

Despite its lean figure, the Petruschka“produces a symphonic tone quality with enormous sound-carrying potential due to the large bore size of the piston valve section. Ergonomic proportions and a total height of only 85 cm (33.4 inches) allow for easy playability. For the soloist, this model is a dream leaving no wishes unfulfilled.
