My old tuba: I borrowed and borrowed tubas while I told people I was looking, and someone came around with a neat horn for 500 bucks.
My new tuba: Student loans; also: old good-running car, low-cost school, cheap essentials, no home stereo to speak of, just the minimum amount of beer (average a six-pack/month or less).
Plus: wonderfully supportive parents -- I don't know how they do it. I can only hope to be as capable as them when I have a family.
