    “…euphonious majesty…” wow, that’s an amaz­ing com­bi­na­tion of words! lol

    Eeeh, I hate to be picky, but the Sousa­phone was the march­ing equiv­a­lent of the Tuba. The one on her back looks more likely to be a Tuba, mainly since it isn’t round.

    Jeez, I’m a pain. >.<

    Isn’t the sousa­phone more like a dis­pho­nium?
