    Very cool! Never seen the Python Tubas before. That would be great for standup gigs for sure. I noticed the baritone player using circular breathing at times. You can see him wince and puff his...

    The 642 bell is 12" and not one piece. Also notice in the pictures shared above that the top bell bracing is lower on the 642 than on the 641. You really can't see the brace on the 641 as it's a...
