This year I had the great pleasure of tending to my company's booth at the 2011 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic. While there I had the opportunity to take a few photos and try some Tubas. Above you can see one angle of Conn-Selmer's booth. Up front is the King 2341 4 valve BBb Tuba. The colorful items on stands behind it are the new plastic Trombone, the "P-Bone."

I will post a few more photos later. Some technical issues prevent me from uploading any more at the moment.
