You're quite welcome for the great "set-up" for the humor in the thread below...

Getting back to the boring unfunny Bydlo instrument selection thread, I simply meant that the lower range non-solo part is just part of the larger orchestral texture of the "lumbering oxcart" accompaniment figure. As ego-centric as ANY member of a large ensemble should be about their individual sound quality (the key to a magnificent overall orchestral sound), I really don't believe that the difference between (even, say) a bell-front baritone and a 6/4 tuba playing that "accompaniment" part (assuming the same volume level and level of expertise offered by the player on either instrument) makes any significant difference in the overall tonality of the orchestral accompaniment "lumbering oxcart" effect at that point in the music... more than, say, an English horn playing quarter notes as part of widely-voiced chords at f in the middle register vs. a bassoon playing the same thing in the lower-middle register at f .
