Hello friends, Samm Bennett here. I've always liked tubas: how they sound and how they look. Due to their size and their certain, well, outlandishness, they are very photogenic and have long held a place in the popular imagination. Hope you enjoy this little tuba gallery, comprised of various vintage photographs, drawings, Valentine's cards, postcards, etc,, all featuring, in some way or another, the big horn. New tubarific pics are added regularly to the top of this page, so stop by again sometime.

Since this is a tuba gallery, just ignore those other three wind instruments. Ignore the tank, too.
Above and below, it's Joe Tarto, a man who made a name for himself blowing the big horn from the 1920s through the 1980s.
And there's Joe Tarto, one more time, at far left...
