    Stuck 1st Valve Slide

    My poor Neo BBb is suffering from a seized 1st valve slide and I can’t budge it. Any tested methods or ideas to safely move it? It’s my own fault for neglecting the poor thing. I may otherwise have to resort to finding a Tuba doctor in Yorks to help. :) Thanks all!

    Dinnington Colliery Band - doing fine!

    I helped out Dinnington (with Jonathan conducting) a few years back in various contests on BBb (inc. the finals in Cheltenham) - a thoroughly lovely and fantastic group of people, with great ethos and attitudes who made me feel very welcome. :)

    Tuba Gig Bag - Yamaha Neo

    Hi Nick, Yes, the bag (Gold Series- Up to 22" Bell) fits the Neo brilliantly and without a tight squeeze like some bags, it's easy to place in/out. It's well made/robust and has to be the best designed gig bag I've seen. Well worth the investment. :)
