New Tuba Search

Postby jtuba4 » Tue May 17, 2016 7:06 pm

I am currently looking to buy a 5/4 professional CC tuba. This will be the first tuba I have ever purchased and I just wanted to know some tips on purchasing a tuba. My biggest concern is where I should go to try different horns. I live in Alabama and there are virtually no places I can find close to me to try out different instruments. Any ideas are welcome.

Their advice is great! There is NOTHING in the southeast that I have found where you can try a variety of tubas. Most music stores have ZERO of them on hand. If you are in north Alabama, Bloke is not far from you (Mid-South Music, Williston, Tn).
