Exploding Tuba

Exploding Tuba

An exploding tuba is a musical instrument which caused the destruction of Ackerly Town Hall during the 1902 first and only performance of The Wizarding Suite by Musidora Barkwith (fl. 1500s) (FW).┬áSince the tuba was not invented until 1835, the original piece must have been written for a different instrument, possibly the “serpent,” which was invented in the mid-1500s.
