Magnus Brandseth
  The Norwegian tuba star is the latest addition to the Sterling team of international stars

Sterling Musical Instruments have welcomed Norwegian tuba star Magnus Brandseth to their ranks of international performance artists.


The Eikanger Bjorsvik Band tuba player has been working with Sterling Instruments over the past year or so to develop the latest range of tuba instruments that are now making such an impact on the banding world.

Regarded as one of the most versatile players of his generation — able to combine brilliant technique and sublime musical artistry, he has gained a worldwide reputation for his playing in any genre he turns his hand to.

We have been working with Magnus for some time now and his insight into what makes the perfect tuba has spurred us onPaul Riggett.

Remarkable musician

Sterling Instruments MD Paul Riggett told 4BR: "We have been working with Magnus for some time now and his insight into what makes the perfect tuba has spurred us on.

He is a remarkable musician and someone we are proud to have as one of our international performance artists."
