No.

It's because you get paid more for playing them.

Other nicknames are singing pigs, hitler phones (don't shoot the messenger), that also doubles for rotary trumpets.

Any ive missed ?

so we are currently trying to find out whether the Tony Halstead Ensemble tubas cost $120 a week EACH or ( unlikely) 120 for all 4...anybody know?

Hello 'Meldoy', maybe the website isn't quite clear enough..?
The tubas are £120 ( not dollars) a week - for THE ENTIRE SET OF FOUR WAGNER TUBAS plus delivery and insurance.
