I am not a tubist, so I guess my profession doesnt apply :)

But, I have personally noticed a strange trend in tuba players--I know a few tubists (some very good ones) who are pilots. And I also know a computer admin as well... hmm, I smell a poll coming... :)

I'm definately not a tubbist, just a player :)

Electrical engineer, VLSI (think microchips).

Come to think of it, most the Tuba players in college became engineers. Electrical, mechanical, aerospace, most disciplines. Don't remember and chemecial engineers though.

US Marine contrabass bugler.

(there, I've outed myself.. lol)

I also manage inventory & do basic repairs on the horns, do some of the recording, and run some other in-house activities.

If I weren't in music, I'd have found some science-related profession of some kind. Either that, or a fireman (who didn't want to be a fireman when they grew up?).

I earned a living for about 30 years working as a machine designer/manufacturing engineer/sales engineer and worked in a small home workshop doing brass repairs for the last five years. In January 2003 the company I represented went under and forced me into brass repair work full time. What a great day that was! Seriously!

A tuba gig a week, a few repairs, buy & sell a few band instruments.... no kids to support, a professional working wife, .... life is good. er... I mean GRREEEAAAAATTTT!

When I play my tubas my audience is usually about 120 head of Angus beef cattle lined up at the fence and singing along.. I am a cattleman raising registered Angus seedstock.

Yep, I got a whole bunch of "seeds" just floating in liquid nitrogen in the tank down at the barn as we do a lot of embryo transplant work. Its lot easier to ship them by UPS than the full grown ones too!

Please excuse my ignorance. I've never heard of a bass-harp. What does it sound like (probably like a regular harp only lower)? Is there much music written for a bass-harp?

I guess I could subtract from this thread by coming out of the closet and saying that I am a state tax program manager.
