Great starter pack for my music therapy/rec drumming business. Cannot recommend the Sound Shapes highly enough! Those were a particularly great surprise. Very happy with the durability and sound of all the instruments. :)
Yes, the tubano should be tilted for best sound. It's not a large instrument, and does come with a strap, so that helps. Wish it did have feet, like the Kids collection tubanos, but I've had no problem with the smaller kids either tilting or using the strap. Hope this helps!
