the day started out okay, was cruisin pbf and i went outside to ride. cuz its my birfday.. wanted to have some fun. it was also the day of the band banquet. so i went to the band banquet, ironically themed a hoedown because i live in the sticks. i opened some stuff after i got home.. and i was actually very happy to receive it:



a pillow, a fly gear bag, and some valve oil for band. so my mom goes "what are you going to use that valve oil on?" and i of course said the ****ty school tuba i had in my room. so she says "lets go out to the garage", and at that point i figued what was coming up. i was right.






me at the helm :)

it is a cerveny model 618 4 rotary valve BBb tuba. hand made, one of the best.

needless to say, i had the most wondeful weekend ive ever experianced.

also again, sorry for making a bday thread.. just thought it would be cool to show you guys. (i dont turn 17 til tomorrow btw)

edit: also, i apologize for the horrible irony between this thread and my username.

You look like you have been caught punching the pope behind your new found glory... but yes what an excellent gift. I use to play the saxophone in High School and started with a ****ty yamaha... my buddy got a Selmer and the difference is just amazing, i bet you sound much better, and its going to be easier to improve now, too. well thats what i found during my tenure with a more advanced instrument compared to a lesser one.
