    There are some valid points made by all. So in conclusion, the French Tuba in C is only practical for those purists who need to play the French repertoire as intended? It really isn't useful for...

    Thanks for your reply.

    1) I am not sure what you mean by this. Couldn't (wouldn't) a modern built French tuba in C live up to the 'modern' expectations of intonation?

    Theoretical question about French tuba in C

    Ever since I've learned of the existence of the French Tuba in C, I have wondered why it has gone 'extinct'.

    As I see it, it is more versatile than a Euphonium, since it is able to play much...

    Hello Guido, I have considered but not done that, as I am "just wondering" and - for now - have no real interest in their TC236. So, if no-one here has the answer, I'll just "keep wondering"...

    Just wondering, Wessex also produces a "French tuba in C" but altered the 3d valve to modern tuning. Do they provide a fingering chart with their instrument?

    I may be going a slightly different direction here, but my take on this is that there is so much more than just sound what makes an instrument 'magical'. Personally, I think the 'magic' is mainly in...

    On my Festivo, I've found that the 2nd valve is quite flat. I always have to play high A with 1-3. High G is problematic, 1-2 already is quite flat, 3 is even flatter. Haven't found a good...

    I did upload it by phone (android) so I am sure it has something to do with that. But enough about that, let's discuss tuba...I have no idea what make it is, but I do believe it is an Eb.

    I am a mediocre player (don't practice daily, or even weekly...:eek:) and currently play a Wessex Festivo with a Wick 3AL. Would you say a Wedge mouthpiece could be useful for me?

    Castell Coch- T. J. Powell

    I really like this march. It is not really challenging for Euphonium/baritone but it does have some nice sixteenth runs. The low brass theme just sounds awesome.
