Tuba attracts the odd band members. Thats saying a lot.
I think the Tuba might weigh 275 pounds, those things are crazy.
They're brass foil wrapped around AIR. They're mostly awkward, not heavy!
I never pushed that when I played.
You might get that impression but it's not so accurate. Definitely, more normal than most would think. Plus, the extra height and shine from the instrument get you way more attention...it's a good thing :thumbsup:
so what I get from this post is...play tuba get poodehtay?
About 45 pounds of metal. Takes a number out on your shoulder; I still have scar tissue after 1.5 decades of play.
For the record, my playing weight in college was around 235, and I like to think I was a badass tuba. One on the best tubas I've ever played with (tuba who does the splits) hovered right around 100 lbs. It takes all sizes and shapes.
I always thought that girl was awesome. Ever since she kicked a shoe into the crowd during a b-ball game.
How old are you?
He knew the young DBT.
The tuba cheer was better when it was a CHEER. They used to run out to the center of the court, play real loud then spin around. They need to lose the jump ropes and the little skits and go back to it being a simple fanfare.
lol, that should've read 1.5
I'm in total agreement.
I miss 2004 Buff basketball tuba guy. His combination of size and spin velocity would have gotten him a 5-star rating had internet tuba recruiting services existed at that time.
+1, compeltely agree...The rest of the band saw it as a way to get more pub so they took it. When it was a little skit on the baseline or in the corner it was fine. It is waaaay out of control now.
We all miss him...He might not be farther away from the community than people think.
