I have had my Mack Brass bass trumpet since February and have played it almost every day since then. I am a trumpet player with a little trombone experience, so this horn has been a learning process for me. I have not tried other bass trumpets, but here are my impressions after getting to a point where I have played it with my band in public. Many people complain that a bass trumpet is stuffy (even good ones). This one plays easily, particularly in the mid to upper range and the intonation is good, easy to stay on pitch and blend with a group. Most notes have plenty of center. The only exception is low D (the nemesis of all horns). It has a very narrow center. After four months, I can say that the horn suits my purpose of playing bass and tenor parts in my church band to give others a chance to play leads. It has a nice tone that you can manipulate like a trumpet. It plays like a trumpet., not a free as a trombone, but much more comfortable for me as a trumpet player. At this price, it is a great choice, and it is fun to play. In addition, Tom was great to work with, giving me extra time to try it out and get used to it. I'll be back for the picc in the not too distant future!

Firstly: Tom is an excellent person to deal with. He had my horn ordered and delivered in no time, and was clear in everything that was happening. I received what I payed for in the time he said it'd arrive. Top notch guy. I purchased a Mack 210s BBb tuba, and the horn is perfect. It's enormous for a 4/4 (should be a 5/4 by all standards in my opinion) and plays like one too. It's got a great mid-high register, and its low range is fantastic. Super dark and throaty, all the way down the pedal range (F0) --and if that wasn't enough, the thing is GORGEOUS in silver. One might say it's too good to be true for the price, but it isn't. He's actually selling this horn for 4-5x cheaper than comparable horns of the same quality! Unreal. But the fact remains: the quality is there. Yamaha should be watching their backs. I've recommended Tom and Mack Brass to all of my educator friends and professional musicians alike. 10/10. More purchases from me are in the future.

From the "looking" to the "help me" stage, Mack Brass is top notch. We were purchasing a French Horn for our son since he decided he definitely wants to continue playing French horn on into junior high and high school. Not knowing what is a good brand of horn, we typed the question in and on one of the answers that showed up, Mack Brass was mentioned. So we checked it out. We emailed you with our questions and even though we expected an email, you promptly called us. What business has someone that calls you to answer questions these days??? An AWESOME one, that's who! We ended up purchasing the French horn we were looking at and then this weekend, when we came into a problem (son hadn't played the new French horn for a while and the keys were "stuck"), we emailed the problem/question over to you. Within HOURS of the email, on a Sunday even, you had called and left a message on how to fix it (which, of course, worked), why the problem happened, and how to prevent it in the future. Your customer service and the shopping experience itself is beyond top notch. It is simply extraordinary. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We will be referring everyone we know that is looking for a new instrument your way. Keep up the high level of excellence, sir!

Hi Tom. Haven't talked with you for 10 Months. Hope all is well. I have been playing the compensating euphonium that I purchased from Mack Brass in April last spring. I play 2 hrs per day 5 days a week. I have yet to have a problem of any kind. My buddies play the high dollar Jupiters and Yamaha's.We trade instruments from time to time just for fun. They actually prefer the tone and deep smooth sound from the Mack horn. I'm really partial big time to my Mack Brass euphonium when I consider the performance/cost factor. Have a happy and thankful easter. I sure will. I'm 75 years old, have had 3 open hearts, diabetes, and bone marrow cancer and going like a race horse.my music is my medicine. Thanks againPASE

I feel like this is a very solid horn. You guys have done a great job and I would recommend this horn to anyone who cannot afford an expensive horn, like my Stirling!

I recently purchased the TU200 and I absolutely love the sound of the horn, it’s low register sounds incredible! It has a much better lower range than I was expecting. The upper range is also very nice and I did not have any problems playing in the higher register. This horn offers a nice full deep dark sound. I played last week with several tuba players that have been playing for many years and they where surprised at the quality and more importantly the wonderful sound this horn can produce. The rotary valves are smooth and quite too which was another surprise. I really had no idea what to expect, and had heard horror stories of Chinese made horns having terrible valves and shoddy workmanship, but this was not the case. These valves are very well made, Tom and his crew go through each horn and make sure they are in good working order. The rear caps are easy to get to and remove for oiling, and I find that if you turn it counter clockwise first they drop right onto the threads for easy tightening. The bracings are all well done, and this horn is no lightweight! I was also very impressed with it’s overall heft and what appears to be a very rugged well made horn for the price. It also comes with a foam fitted case with wheels. The case is well lined and has 2 mouthpiece wells for storage, It has a large outer pocket, that is perfect to hold music and a tuner, oils and any other items you would care to bring along. The case is big though and adds to the weight so I purchased a Protec C240 as per Tom’s recommendation and use the Protec back pack style case for transporting the tuba around. This horn is a fantastic deal, and I feel will fit my needs for a very long time. I would highly recommend anyone considering a new tuba to contact Tom and give these horns a look, I’m so glad I did!

I'm a horn player, but recently bought an old trumpet. I'm enjoying it so much that I want to get a nicer, new one. I love the size of the pocket trumpet, but wonder if I would notice a difference compared to a regular trumpet. Well, with your 7 day guarantee, I feel safe ordering the pocket trumpet. If I'm not satisfied, I could pay the extra and exchange it for the trumpet. Sounds great. I didn't see anything about what kind of cases these instruments come in. Getting excited :-) I may be calling you on Monday.

I have played this Mack MACK-EU1150S Euphonium for about 6 months now... It plays almost as well as my Boosey and Hawkes 1978, 4+1 large bore Euphonium - professional model. I played my B&H for 40 years! When it was damaged, I had to look for a suitable instrument to play. The Mack MACK-EU1150S Euphonium is an awesome instrument; warm sound and when needed it can take the solo line and soar over the band! The note slotting is perfect, the intonation is perfect and I cannot say enough good things about this horn. I recommend it for any professional player!

I bought 210L and this is great tuba that can compete with Miraphone and Yamaha. I had to pull out the slides just like in the youtube and the intonation is perfect. The sound is great. Highly recommended

Just brought home my MACK-TU410S tuba today - wow, what a nice horn! Nice, round sound, great low range, really good fit and finish, plus the case is nice, too. I am surprised at how heavy the horn is - the brass seems as thick as on any other tuba I've had in my lap. If you are looking for a really great CC for an even better price, the 410 is it!
