    There was a Cimbasso on one of the trade stands at last year's Tuba and Eupho do in Manchester. The sound from it was just awesome.
    Would think the Fluba would equal it. :lol:

    If you know a source which supplies BBW free of charge, I'd be obliged if you shared it with us. Most of us have to pay £3.85 a month for the privelege.

    Can you imagine the arm ache after a 2 hour rehearsal - ouch! :x It'd hurt so much you wouldn't be able to lift your post-practice pint, and what a disaster that would be for a tuba player :D

    Didn't I see somewhere that the Flugel Horn is actually a member of the tuba family? :dunno

    Ah yes you're right. :lol:

    So I'm offically a "dirty" tuba player then. Well that might explain my drinking habits after the Area. Either that or the *beep* result! :shock:

    It's just a Eb contrabass trumpet, don't know what's so strange about it... :wink:

    I confess that I was expecting to see a Tuba made out of Flubber or something.

    i thought it was going to be a tuba sized flute... :oops:

    well, I'm sure if I had lots of money to waste on pointless instruments, I'd get one of those!

    They were on a stand at the Scottish, and you could just pick one up. I expect it was a promotional copy or something - it was someone else that got it so i don't know for sure.

    You could certainly create some new hairstyles for your horn section during an ff passage!!
