The Ophicleide is such an amazing instrument! It is my favorite low brass instrument! It sounds like a cross between a bassoon, a tuba, a trombone, a euphonium, and a tiny little bit of saxophone. It was very popular for a little while in the mid 1800s, but the tuba took over once it was discovered. Now there is only one professional ophicleide player in Toronto, and I had the pleasure of being his student in the Toronto All City Orchestra.
