I've tried a 496, and though that pic might be deceiving, it's no small tuba. I've also stood next to Wayne more than once. He is one tall drink of water, that's for sure. And I'm very proud (and a bit envious) he acquired a new Hagen.


You and I are in agreement. I find it a big 5/4 tuba, and he makes it look like a F.

BTW, Doc, I have the TU-43 that came with my 496 that I'm not presently using. PM me and let's work out a loan for trial per your earlier.

I played the Siegfried at Midwest some years ago and Marcus (and I think Steve Ferguson? he was right next door) laughed at how it looked like a "normal tuba" on me... :mrgreen:
