I believe that it was Rhythm & Brass with whom Charles Villarubia was performing at the NAMM Show a few years ago. It was in the Yamaha booth, and they were demonstrating Yamaha's SilentBrass and other "Silent" instruments (guitar, bass, digital drums, etc.). To hear the live performance, you had to put on one of the many pairs of headphones that were at the display.
Ironically, Charles was not playing a Yamaha tuba, although there were several on display. He was playing a horn with a detachable bell that had "Osmun" engraved on it.
