Vienna Phil

Does anyone know what kind of tuba these guys are playing?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFvApxrAco4

It looks like the guys in the back is playing the Vienna 6 valve system tuba. Is the front guy playing a 5/4 rudolf Meinl tuba? Or is he on a 6v Vienna tuba too? Thank you

Every time I hear that clip, I chuckle over the sound quality of that front tuba....knowing my sound is at least better than what comes across on the recording. In real life, there is likely no comparison, I fully realize.

What you said...my jaw dropped the first time I ever saw this video with how absolutely stunning Christoph Gigler's sound is.
One that impressed me even more...around 4:30 into the video...L.O.W.R.E.G.I.S.T.E.R :shock:

Okay ... the guy in front is Christoph Gigler on his Rudy Meinl 5/4, 5 valve BBb Tuba.
The other guy in the corner is Paul Halwax on a Rudy Meinl 5/4, 6 valve F Tuba.
The third paddle on the left is for the trigger on the 2nd valve slide.
Hirsbrunner HB-2 CC-Tuba (from 1979)
Max Enders F-Tuba (from the 1930s)

Yeah, but how much of that edge is bass trombone and how much is tuba?
They're so tight that it's hard to tell.

Let's not mistake 'edge' in a cylindrical instrument for 'core' in a conical instrument.
