I know that Bobo played this. I want to know the tuba he used. I think it is called Hammer, but he sounds sort of like a bass trombone on the low notes.

At the time, Roger was playing a 184 ALMOST exclusively (I COULD be wrong on this), but he also used a 186.

AFAIK Tommy Johnson was also playing the bass tuba part with Roger hence the extraordinary volume on those low notes. As to what tubas they are playing I am clueless.

I'd have to bet on a 184. Remember, this IS Roger Bobo.

Dayum! :shock:

Reminds me kind of the Mnozil guys... Super loud, in your face, and a wall of sound. Very bright.

Makes a lot more sense to hear it from a small tuba than to try to overblow hard a 6/4 tuba. That's hard to do, and a fast track to...

A hard-working/determined/analytical player (who has worked their way to the top) has figured this out.
Many others continue to be mesmerized via the *H-DE of throwback CSO-style instruments.

Yeah, that 10 pounds of sh#t in a five pound sack sound is a real classic. It certainly caught on in the big American orchestras. So why do the unwashed masses seem to mostly play instruments that sound like tubas now? Mabye they didn't get the memo or they and their associates in the orchestra like a big, rich, deep tuba sound.
