A 184 or a 282 would be a ton of fun to own and have many non- 6/4 uses.

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.


I have some recordings by this player I know who uses a 2341 BBb and absolutely kills! Superb sound and playing. Just sayin...
