Congrats, Mary Ann!
To follow-up on the earlier saga(s), what tuba mouthpiece(s) ended-up working well for you?
For the gig bag: If you're into making one yourself, a standard issue Army Duffle Bag (the big green vertical cylinder-shaped one w/'back-pack' straps) would be a great place to start. You could make an appropriate padded bag, as an insert into the (re-sized/shaped)duffle bag.
If I had a tuba w/a bell & body small enough (sounds like yours is), that's where I would start. You should be able to get the bag from any Army surplus supplier or the like.
