Geib Photo Gallery

Fred Geib (1871-1950)

When complete, this page will include a good number of Fred Geib photographs obtained from Teri Neilsen, Mr. Geib's granddaughter.  Check back soon and often! 

The picture in the upper left corner appears in his book-- Geib Method for Tuba (published by Carl Fischer in 1942).  The tuba in the portrait is currently owned by Mike Lynch, who currently resides in Austin, Texas.  It is a rotary valve CC Conn tuba.  Prior to Lynch, the horn was owned by Warren Deck, former Principal Tubist with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

This is the latest photograph I have.  Teri Nielsen titles this picture "The Two Freds."



Richard Murrow playing one of Mr. Geib's tubas.  This is a Conn CC five rotary valve tuba currently owned by Mike Lynch-- previously owned by Warren Deck.  (I believe this is the same tuba as the one appearing with Mr. Geib at the top of this page).
