Here's a CLUE !!!
Take the time to listen to a Sam Pilafian
recording and then ask yourself whether or not
he was achieving the exact sound that he wanted
... in other words; finding his (musical) voice.
Listen to recordings by John Fletcher (Besson EEb)
and Marty Erickson (Willson EEb) and Pat Sheridan
(Besson EEb) and Harvey Phillips (Conn CC).
Do you think these great artists were
concerned about the "size"
of the tubas they were playing ???
