The largest of the low-brass family of musical instruments, tubas often provide the supporting bass lines in ensemble playing. The term 'tuba' is used broadly to describe several different types of instruments; there are contra-bass tubas, whose fundamental pitches are BBb or CC, and bass tubas (Eb or F).
