    Yep, Kowa-Bunga indeed. That word was popularized by Chief Thunderthud (what a name) on the Howdy Doody show (40's and 50's). I still start off each morning when I wake up by saying "Howdy Doody"...

    If I remember correctly, when I play my Eb tuba, the D concert above the staff, is flat. I use 1-2 for that note. I have to keep reminding myself of that quirk every time I play it, which isn't too...

    Now how does that work exactly? Wear a mask if you have no part (tacet) for a particular piece? Wear a mask during extended rests in a piece? Wear your mask in between pieces?

    Yes, I think either look swell, although I would probably opt for silver unless there were more gold touches on the horn. Gorgeous horn and great find, Franz! Don't set it down, someone will take...

    Ditto what Dave said. I think it took me a bit to really get the most out of my Adams. I mean, I liked it from the very start, but I "learned" how to approach it and play it better as time went on....
