Wording of first paragraph[edit]

I dislike the wording on the article in the first paragraph of the history section, it makes it sound like EEEb tubas more common than they were, and, to my knowledge, no more than five of these instruments were made. I do not, however, know how to reword the paragraph at the moment, as it is late, but if it's not edited tomorrow I'll change it. 68.93.81.112 (talk) 03:22, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

"Bazooka Tuba"?[edit]

Is anyone else familiar with the slang term "Bazooka Tuba" for this instrument or other shoulder-carried tuba? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.191.125.142 (talk) 07:44, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

First contra prior to over-the-shoulder models[edit]

Jack Bullock is known for his innovations in bugle instruction and arranging, mainly with the Geneva Appleknockers in upstate New York. In the 1950s, he was one of the first to create jazz-styled horn arrangements. He also made performing a year-round activity, scheduling sit-down stage concerts during the winter months. For many winters, the Appleknockers attracted more members for the winter schedule of performances than for summer parades and field shows. He was instrumental in working with Whaley Royce and Co. manufacturers of Toronto, Canada in introducing the first contra-bass bugle, almost 10 years before the over-the-shoulder model became common. The Whaley Royce design produced the proper sound, but the horn was the conventional bugle shape. The weight of the instrument made it too heavy and cumbersome to manage while marching, and it was used only briefly by the Appleknockers.
