Who is BMB?
Big Mouth Brass is a tuba company initially founded as part of the W. Nirschl brass division of the Gemeinhardt flute company in 2006. Models J-844, 845 and 744 were, and still are, built on German tooling purchased from Walter Nirschl. The other models in the line were designed and developed by Richard Barth. When new ownership at Gemeinhardt decided to focus solely on woodwinds, Mr. Barth decided the tuba division was too important to let fade and so BMB was born in 2010.
