They also usually cut the thickness of the metal right down to reduce the weight, particularly with the shoulder-mounted basses, so it is very difficult to produce any depth of sound.ScrapingtheBottom said:Surely the band would just look like a load of stupid sized cornets?
If you think that's wierd, check out the marching tubas (and contra-bass bugles in G) on Kanstul's website, http://www.kanstulmusic.com/instruments.htm. They're carried on the shoulder, bell facing forward. Generally used by drum corps, although I'm sure there are a few marching bands around who use them as well. See DCI's website for a look at similar instruments in action - www.dci.org.Euph-Bari said:http://www.wwbw.com/Kanstul-Bb-Marching-Euphonium-i87104.music
