The Tuba Exchange has been serving low brass players and band directors across the US since the mid 1980's, and our mission remains the same: to provide reasonably priced quality musical instruments to our customers with first class customer service.
Todd Rodrigue, Owner
Todd, is a twenty-five year (and counting) veteran of the music industry, 14 of those years (and counting) spent right here at The Tuba Exchange. In 2021, Todd purchased the company, and quickly expanded to include all brass musical instruments to include top pro trumpets, trombones, and French horns. You’ll see him at trade shows and other educational events, so be sure to stop in to say hi.
