Is this the future of marching tubas?????

Post by Bandmaster » Mon Aug 05, 2013 12:11 am

Saw this one on YouTube today... a video introducing a brand new design for a tuba that can be carried easily while marching and even dancing. A bell front design that sort of fits like a vest. They call it the "Python Tuba" and comes with 4 valves.

Well.... do you think it will catch on?

As my wife just said, that's what we need - more dancing tuba players. Thanks for sharing, though!

Definitely interesting. Not sure it will catch on. I'd like to see what the case looks like that you carry it in.
