The start of a really great thread..tuba ergonomics!
My 44-year old right arm seems to want to complain to me
when I play my smallish tuba, a rotary-valved Mirafone 184 CC.
The bottom arch rests on my lap, just like my big 6/4 horn.
I have one other tuba which I often rest on the seat edge,
but also sometimes on my lap. No probs with the front piston-valve
tubas....just my lil 184!...I dunno if I am tensing up because of the size
of the lil bugger or not! HELP
