Tempest News, Travels, and Events

TMEA: Texas Music Educators Association Conference

Posted: February 8, 2018

Tempest continues to grow as a dominant force and the quality of our instruments continue to improve, such as

Tempest Marching Horns are made with thicker metal.  We then rebalance the instruments for better support at major stress points.  With the addition of thicker and properly placed brace points, Tempest Horns can withstand the most aggressive of marching styles.

Tempest Tubas have been redesigned stronger with increased nickel silver re-enforcements at key brace points. Key levers, Uniball rotors, and bell thickness have also been increased.  The concert tuba line now features a warranty for a full “10” years
