An Olds Tabor cleaned up for me a while back.

Sounds great, and if i trip while hiking, a dent won't break my heart...

Anyway, it was nice to get out.
Thanks for playing!

Doh.

Posting a pic and forgetting to credit the photographer:

@danielosofsky on the instagram.

Almost as bad an idea as activating the tuba-god.

You how trumpets are supposed to be cylindrical as compared to cornets being conical?

What would a completely cylindrical brass instrument sound like?

I kinda want to play an instrument without keys that can double as a blowdart.

Does anyone else take advantage of the mobility offered by a sousaphone bell joint to point the bell in odd directions?

I try to occasionally, but i don't know how much difference it makes.

Instead of talking to your plants, if you yelled at them would they still grow, but only to be troubled and insecure?

I think i've seen someone paint up something like this to resemble a 2 headed dragon...

But i don't think i've heard it in isolation to evaluate how well it works, as it was in a big group.

I think what i'd wanna go for though, is have it rotate whilst playing, like the radar on a conning tower. (Made by Conn, if i'm lucky)

Yup. Very likely him if he was at a recent Boston Tubachristmas.

Which is perhaps small as large metropolitan tubachristmases go, but still not the ideal environment to evaluate new and unusual things.
