Thread: Once upon a Time

  1. #1

    Once upon a Time

    Netflix show, Once upon a Time, season 4, episode 7, "Snow Queen". At the ball in Arendelle, a group of musicians play and the tuba player is shown (and heard) very prominently.

    For some reason, I can not get the picture upright...

    Nice picture. If you click on it a second time it becomes upright.

    It's displayed fine for me from the beginning. I think y'all got some image issues on your devices. Of course I only read this forum on my 24" monitor under Win 10.

    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 think it's a BBb. Way too much tubing for an Eb. Looks a lot like a Yamaha YBB-105WC.

    Were those guys actually playing those instruments? Or was it all faked?

    Well, that shows how much I know about tubas these days...I thought it looked a bit small for a Bb or even C tuba.

    The tubist was faking it, considering how he did not push the valve all the way down in the beginning of the song. I did not even bother to think if the fingering made any sense.
