Hartmut Geilert is an utter badass. Simply dissatisfied with “regular” size contrabass tubas, Hartmut decided to craft a sub-contrabass tuba that would satisfy his needs.
Towering at an imposing 8 feet tall, weighing in at over 110 lbs, and consisting of 164 feet of tubing, the Riesentuba is truely a sight to behold.
Here is a video of Hartmut’s creation being played by the great Jörg Wachsmuth.
P.S. Gig tonight at the Evening Muse in Charlotte, NC. Show starts at 10:30.
P.P.S. There are only a few days left on our album kickstarter. Please help out and spread the word.
