Why have 3 valves when you can have 6 and a main tuning slide kicker???

3 valve Compensating Eb tuba. Great concept if you only need to play higher than a low Ab

If I had to play a 3 valve instrument the rest of my life, I'm choosing that one

In the multiverse there is a TubeNet where we talk about how we greased our cat with toothpaste and hot sauce so it would fly better in the rain. Even then someone would ask whether the cat was lacquered or silver plated.

He has some great videos on YouTube. I've watched a few more since I posted that one.
