The Tuba is the engine of the band, driving both the tonal center and the pace of the piece. Sporting from three to as many as six piston or rotary valves, it smoothly purrs along at any tempo. But when it roars to life, people feel its true power rumbling through the band. The Tuba can slip into high gear at a moment's notice, or go for the long haul along any musical highway.

Whether rhumbaing with Yuba, Tubby or the Great Root Bear, the Tuba is the metal in the pedal.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to handle this instrument, prove it.
