A Massive Tuba from 100 Years Ago
A music school in Kraslice, Czech Republic is decorated with a tuba taller than the height of a person. Apparently made for display at the World's Fair held in New York in 1913, it is simply gigantic. It is said to be able to produce notes two octaves lower than an F tuba. If any of you are able, definitely take the chance to listen to it!
