You make that 2145 look like a 2165

Yeah, but look how large she is compared to the chair. She's enormous! :lol:

Whatever the reason, it was a nice touch.

I didn't think tuba players needed a reason to be in the beer aisle?! :shock: :lol:


Okay, maybe "why" was the wrong word...more like "how you were able get get there with your tuba?" It's damn cool, and I'm a little jealous. :)

At Christmas, members of our brass band play occasional events for the Salvation Army (long story), and this one happened to be inside a two story Kroger. We were upstairs next to the natural foods, wine & beer.... How could I not have a picture taken of me in front of the beer cooler?!?

In no particular order:

Freshman year homecoming game at Alma College '06 - 1950s Conn 20K, End of senior year of high school on sister school's Yamaha sousie, Jazz band 8th grade on a Miraphone or a Yamaha

Image Image Image

Graduation June '06 can't remember which rotary tuba I used, sat next to a valve trombone player in the orchestra, Senior year of high school indoor performance, Outdoor playoff game -both on a brass Yamaha sousie (we had good old Kings before this)

Image Image Image

Freshman at Alma on a Conn 36K (trombone player is like 6'8"-9"), Junior year in the stands on a hot Saturday afternoon (silver POS yamaha sousies), Marching back to the band room from the stadium (Me, freshman bassoon player, freshman (girl) tuba player, sophomore electric bass and tuba player), the good old 20K (sounds and plays better than the new Yamahas we have, infact a couple of the new ones broke this past season) going to marching band practice - some random guy came by and said "Hey can I take your picture?"

Image Image Image Image

Not sure where any of my instruments are at . .

My Rudolf Meinl custom 5/4 F tuba. Once the CC is overhauled, I'll do some shots with it.

How does it play? I would imagine good for standing gigs - not too heavy?

The body of the horn is gold brass but the valve section is yellow brass. Odd combination but it works great for me. I didn't order it that way but I'm sure glad it came that way.

What a beast! And Cerveny calls that a 5/4? I wonder what a 6/4 form them would look like?
