The bass member of the modern brass family. The tuba family includes the euphonium, sousaphone, C and B flat tubas, and others. The modern orchestral tuba has valves, a conical bore and a range of D1 two octaves below the bass clef staff to G4 above middle C. The bell is very wide and the cup very deep, thus facilitating the extremely low notes so characteristic of the instrument.
