Tuba in the wind and rain has a very jazzy sound.

A tuba by the falls (with a microphone in it) at dusk.

Also apparently with a squadron of B-52 bombers flying overhead.

Came for tubas in the moonlight. Left unsatisfied.

How do you fix a sousaphone?

With a tuba glue

If you're into a duet for tuba and ukulele with vocals, may I recommend my song "Texas Tourney"?

If we're posting random tuba-related links, one of my all-time favorites is trombonist Phil Wilson's The Sound of the Wasp with the amazing Rich Matteson on tuba.

The Tuba by the hydroelectric dam sounds amazing. It could be the drone from a Philip Glass Opera, or ambient music from a modern art exhibit.

I agree - such liquid playing! Though some might say his tone is a bit watered-down...

Sounds like MP3 compression artifacts.

Everyone knows how hard it is to compress water!

Interesting exploration of sound, and some of the results are lovely.

I can't read 'tuba in the stream' without hearing it as sung by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers- "tubas in the stream, that is what we are, no one in between, how can we be wrong"
