Eirik Gjerdevik – E♭Bass
[Solo Tubist, Bergen Navy Band]
Why do I play Yamaha? My Neo E♭ Bass is very easy to play. In tune and consistent in all registers, it is easy to make a beautiful sonorous sound. My work is always quite technically demanding, so I need a tuba which plays with me, not against me. This is the love of my life. Everything I want to play, it plays easily.
