The largest and lowest pitched of all brass instruments, often called a bass within brass bands.

The Tuba or Bass can frequently be found in concert bands, brass bands and orchestras and play at the lowest register. Having first appeared in the mid 19th-century, they are one of the newer brass instruments having replaced the Ophicleide. Different configurations of Tuba are popular across the world however within the UK most models feature 3 or 4 piston valves and a large upwards pointing bell. Due to their large size, younger players will often start on smaller size models such as the JP077 and JP078.
