Tuba storage serious question

Postby ronr » Sat Jun 23, 2018 10:54 pm

Am I ok long-term storing my new tuba on its bell? It’s in a Cronkhite bag. Anything special I could do to protect the bell?

Yes, that will be fine. In terms of protection, it's a gig bag, don't let anything hit it too hard.

At Baltimore Brass and Dillon Music, the tubas are all standing on their bells. Good enough for them, good enough for you! :P

Keep the bagged tuba away from grandkids and great-nephews.
