Craftsman Manfred Paulus adjusts the valves of world’s largest functional tuba — exactly double the dimensions of a normal tuba — at the Musikinstrumenten-Museum in Markneukirchen, Germany. Twenty local artisans helped craft this mega instrument in 2010 as part of celebrations around the 650th anniversary of Markneukirchen, a town with a rich tradition of brass and wood musical instrument manufacturing dating back to the 17th century.
