Excellent!

What are you going to play on that thing? NO jazz? Sousa march? What?

limey 08-31-2009 04:02 PM

There's a local trad jazz band that I'll prolly tag along with ... Sousa wrote some great bass lines for his marches but this instrument is not allowed in the brass band line up so the Sousa'll have to wait!
And next August I'm going to play a duet ("Land of the lonesome pine" with another sousaphone player - only he doesn't know it yet!:D

Awesome. What's the lowest note it can play?

limey 08-31-2009 04:34 PM

It's pitched in Eb but with practice, in theory, the valves'll take it down to an A. That'd be the lowest A on the piano.:eek:

Oh and it makes a LOVELY sound! Good, rich and velvety!

That'd be an A0 - 27.5Hz. Impressive.

Realistically I'll only ever make it to the Eb above that, and that'd just be for special occasions!

Wow, that is approaching the bottom range of human hearing.
