Terrible Underwater Breathing Apparatus
Edit: good lord, I didn’t know someone else posted this previously. I thought it was funny as heck and my kids rolled their eyes when I told it SO THERE.
I’ve dedicated my life to music making and tuba playing.
I have been voted one of the top ten brass players in history by the listeners on Classic FM. I did the first tuba TED talk. I am one of the most popular classical musicians on YouTube with more than six million views. I was entertaining audiences all over the world until this f…n virus stopped all of that. I regularly give (gave :( ) master classes and clinics at major universities worldwide.
I’m in this to learn and to explore. I now want to pass on what I have learnt to you in an online lesson. Sign up for one using this link https://www.baadsvik.com/lesson/ I also have an Ebook with Daily Exercises that you may purchase using this link https://www.ovationmusic.com/daily-exercises-6967 AMA

I’m just really happy and I thought I’d post it here :).
Can someone explain why a 5 Valve C tuba is used so much more commonly than a 4 or 5 valve Bb tuba in orchestras? They are bigger, more expensive, and from my POV, the only thing you get out of them is a pedal B natural.
I'm in the market for a 4-valve Bb sousaphone. I am just starting to save the money, so price isn't necessarily an obstacle, but of course, the less I have to save the sooner I can buy the tuba.
I know System Blue makes one. I played it a couple times at NAMM or some other convention and liked it. I've also seen a few other brands that make them. Does anyone have any advice about which ones are decent and which I should avoid?
Hi fellow tubers
I am offering free online tuba lessons right now. I have been blessed by being able to study with some of the best tuba players (for free) so I’m paying it back. Im a senior music Ed student at Towson university and currently study with Aubrey Foard, I have past studied with David Fedderly, and Seth Horner. I have played in lots of ensembles, as a principal tubist and as a soloist, I marched in the cadets 11-12 and was a soloist in 2012. So if you have drum corps questions I can help too. (Also was a visual caption head at raiders, visual staff at Oregon crusaders) thanks!
I made this a little while ago and thought that the bass community may find it interesting. Let me know what you think!
I swear I play bass, but playing basslines on tuba seems to impress people more.
I got the bright idea a couple weeks ago to buy Rocksmith and see if it would work on tuba. It totally does!
Does anyone have experience with shipping a tuba? I just bought one, I payed 500 for shipping, so I'm not expecting it to take too long...
How long has it taken for anyone here who has had a tuba delivered to them?
I'm a musician and software developer (my day job) and this is always something that I have wanted to make. I spent the last month making a Tuba Excerpt app for iOS. It was a long and difficult process, but I think the end result is worth it! The Android one is in the works, but quite a ways off. I know this resource will help me (and already has!), and I thought that it might help some people on here as well. Let me know what you think!
Note: It's only available in the U.S. due to copyright law...
Pretty cheap horn for sale. Was wondering if you know anything about a Maestro cc tuba, I couldn't really find anything online. I was thinking about getting one to learn cc before purchasing a collage level tuba.
I am looking to mount my Besson New Standard BBb on a sheet rock wall. Does anyone have any experience mounting a large tuba like this on the wall. How is the String Swing Tuba mount? Any other suggestions of mount types?
For doing the actual mounting, I know that I'll need to screw or bolt it into a stud, like mounting cabinets. Thanks ahead of time!
I'm thinking there has to be at least one tuba player who has too much class to make fart sounds.
I currently play clarinet and I am learning tuba now and I need to be ready by the time marching band starts. Do y’all have any recommended tuba lessons on YouTube?
Middle son's been playing the tuba since he got into middle school (started out as a trombone player). He's about to start 11th grade and is looking at going to a musical college to study music/composition and keep playing. I'll give him props, he's got a borrowed tuba and he spends 2-3h a day practicing when he's not in school (ie the 'Rona crisis) and more than that practicing with his band in school.
Anyway he's been bugging us to buy him his own instrument because he doesn't like playing the school instruments (Yamaha YBB-641) and feels they're limited.
I'd like to buy him a good used professional grade tuba - he's really serious about this and why not. He's found a used B&S BS3301-1 for about $7000 and I'd like to hear opinions of it.
any suggestions on tubas to buy?
I'm currently in the market for a Bb Tuba with 4 valves and a very long bell
What are your guy's opinions on compensating tubas. Specifically compensating EEb tubas?
You can get a 6/4 BBb for under $4500 and a 6/4 CC for under $6500. New!
I’m not affiliated with these dudes in any way, just passing along the information for some of you peeps looking to buy.
Does anyone have any possible explanation as to why the tuba is excluded from the loudest parts of the 7th and 9th symphonies, but is included in similarly loud parts in the 6th and 8th symphonies?? I don't see why the 7th and 9th symphonies wouldn't benefit from having an extra tuba in the most bombastic bits.
I don't know the first 5 symphonies well enough to comment on their tuba parts (if there are even any)
I have a bit of a niche question about auditions: I'm looking to audition for a tuba spot next season (I'm not entirely sure where yet), but I don't have a BBb tuba to practice for the audition on. I have a Eb tuba, but I'm wondering if I need to find a BBb somehow to be prepared for the etudes and such.
Fanconi, Barter, Gittleman, Liddle, SAME
Is that funny enough? Do I need to Photoshop something?
Just picture someone playing a tuba through a tube screamer.
Or maybe a green tuba.
I'll leave it open ended for you.
I was wondering if anyone could point me towards an arrangement for F-tuba and wind ensamble. Ive found Baadsviks arrangement for strings and F tuba but am at a lose for an arrangement with band accompaniment.
If anyone knows any arrangements I can buy i would greatly appreciate it.
Sorry to bog this sub down by adding to the hundreds of “what tuba should I buy” posts, but I have to ask.
I’m moving away to attend trade school as it’s something I’m interested in, but I REALLY want to keep music in my life. Specifically tuba. I want to try and learn more on my own since being a music performance major is really not feasible, but I find myself with one minor problem: no tuba. I’ve been looking at used BBb tubas because that is what I know, and they are too costly. They are in the 4-10 thousand range and for someone like me, it’s just not feasible.
Recently I’ve been looking at the Mack Brass 210 BBb (http://www.mackbrass.com/site/e4ae89cd3ddf418cb99a69f79c6d729e/default?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mackbrass.com%2F4_BBb_Tuba_5ROU.php#2687) as I have a former band director who swears by Mack Brass, have heard this specific horn play well in person, and I have also played this horn for a couple of High School concerts.
I know A LOT of people are like “ewwww nasty Chine... keep reading on reddit ➡
