Tuba, resonator guitar & kazoo - The Brass Blues!! :mrgreen:

Check this out guys, hopefully I'm gonna get some gigs going with this duo, here's a clip from a jam this weekend..



Having brass instruments on stage like this feels great and in Sweden it sure is a rare combination, LoL!!

I'm not sure I would have suspected that wasn't a bass from a casual listen. Very clever, works surprisingly well.

Hehe, yes, sometimes it sounds like a double-bass.. :D
But a tuba looks so cool with the brass, goes well next to my bare brass Amistar tricone! :mrgreen:
