A sousaphone is commonly referred to as a tuba
. This is the tuba of choice for many marching bands. The sousaphone section
can consist of 1 person, but many bands have up to 20 of these very awkward instruments.
Warning: Use of a sousaphone without proper training can result in the injury of the player or those around him.
Warning: Sousaphones are not to be used during lightning storms.
Sousaphones are difficult to transport on buses and in cars.
