i don't speak english very well so please understand me. i see you are mostly from america and there you have many brass bands, in croatia isn't like that (brass bands are rarely, and we mostly have old instruments)... so please tell me something about your bands-how many have you members, what do you play and where... my brass band on eng is called mcb, there is about 70 members, we usually play for some town events, for new year, christmas, on the funerals... do you go on some brass bands competitions, do you have any tour...?

Hmm, I have heard good things about Jupiter, though I didn't like the BBb I tried once. The 5th valve addition is great for low range!


My sousa is a Jupiter hybrid. Its like most fiberglass sousas, but the fiberglass is much thicker & strounger and the bell is metal instead of fiberglass. Me and University of Louisville pep band are the only ons with those kinds!

Jupiter's new hybrids aren't much different in sound or weight compared to brass sousas.

hey, I wish to remain relatively anonymous, but..

I live in Ellensburg, Washington, USA.

I'm going on 8th grade

I play a very sorry relic that looks like it's been dropped down the stairs, and it says Besson on the bell. When I started tuba and Mr. May handed me my cruddy cracked mouthpiece and sayed 'go in the back room for a few weeks and then come join us by the christmas concert, there was green slime in the tubes, black gunk on the tuning slide, and lumpy orange stuff that smelled like puke in the valves. I'm sharing it with this 6th grader who forgets to empty the spit valves.

I also play trombone (God's gift to all instruments) and violin

I have no idea what the thing is that I play, exept the case says yamaha and its a piece of trash.
I have not very many teachers and I play in way to many bands
I dont play tuba good. i like tenor bone or bari better because I can acutually play high notes
And besides, the mouthpice covers my whole face so why should I bother with tuba if I cant blow in to it right?
