Videos/Audio of Mack 540 F???

Postby Scrub » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:59 pm

Hey tubers,

Anyone have some audio or video from this horn? Any owners that would like to share their experience? I hear Mr. McGrady is a great guy, and I'm (almost) in the market for my first F tuba. I saw his videos on Youtube and it sounds great, but I'd also like to hear from anyone who's purchased and used it.

Thanks!

I own one of these tubas and they play great! I find it is very close to a real PT15 in sound and feel. It does have the issues that German F tubas carry (pretty stuffy low register and some funky tendencies) but for the money they are great F tubas!
