Bedubya BS: Is it a Tuba? (48) Is it a Tubasnake? 05 Apr 01


I recently saw a tape of a British production of Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles that a friend had taped from the A&E cable channel. There are a couple of scenes in which an Irish band is playing for dances. One of the instruments being played seems to be a variation of the tuba. However, instead of being coiled and of brass, it is in the form of a series of "S" curves and appears to be made of a hardwood such as ebony. It looks more like a shillelagh than any musical instrument I've ever seen. What the Hell is it?
