Me & My Tuba, Add You & Yours

Postby Mister JP » Sat Mar 28, 2009 6:22 pm

Several TubeNetters have posted photos of themselves and their horns, or have them as their avatars, so I'll start a topic devoted to just that, Tubenetters & their tubes, er... tubas.

Here I am in the basement, my usual practice place.

He shoots, he scores! '93 or '94, I cant remember for sure. The blue logo on the tuning slide is the dead giveaway.

schlepporello, awesome one on Pike's Peak.

Thanks for playing along, y'all, keep 'em coming.

Thanks! That was a moment that was just begging to have a tuba put in it.
Here's one from a couple of years back. This was the first Tuba Christmas that I used my EEb Helicon.
I kept having these people walk up and ask me what was that "thing".

Dan, your Conn monster looks a whole lot like the King monster I formerly owned. It's now in a noted collector's collection.

me-and-my-Monke-1979.jpg
I bought this 3/4 BBb Monke from Don Thornton http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Klezmorim and used it for playing with the Churchill Street Jazz Band. The picture was taken after a very long Santa Cruz Jazz Festival set (30 years ago.)

I know Monke still makes cornets and flugelhorns but this is most likely a stencil, unknown maker, post-WW2 ?. I had the linkages upgraded.
