Tuba Tuning Hints By Dave Borsvald Fine-tuning on the tuba is best accomplished by moving slides while playing, usually the first slide. Large top action tubas can be awkward to hold. A player is fortunate if his embouchure corresponds to the mouthpipe height and angle. Access to the first valve slide for tuning is even more problematic. Front action tuba ...
