Tubas

Tubas

A tuba is a brass instrument characterized by its large size and deep sound. It consists of vertically coiled tubing, three, four or five valves, a wide conical bore, flared bell, and a cup-shaped mouthpiece. Since the tuba was first introduced, the world's greatest composers have included it in their music. By far the biggest instrument in the brass family, it also just happens to produce the lowest pitch, and today it can be found in symphony orchestras, military bands and even jazz ensembles. In 1835, the first tuba was patented by Johann Gottfried Moritz and Wilhelm Wiprecht. The overall design of the tube has changed little since the early days of its development.

Sizes

A tuba is a massive instrument with a large bell from 14 to 30 inches in diameter. The size of the bell has an effect on the sound produced and projected. Although there are a variety of different tuba types available on the market, Bb and C are the most common choices. Since Bb tubas have a broader sound with extra weight, they help bring balance to a band’s sound and are the preferred choice for most school marching bands. C tubas, on the other hand, have a clearer and more compact sound, making them the perfect choice for orchestras.

Valves

The more valves a tube has, the greater its range will be. Most tubes have four piston valves. Valves can be either piston or rotary. Piston valves require more maintenance than rotary valves, but are very simple to disassemble and re-assemble for oiling. Piston valves can be oriented to point to the top of the instrument (top-action), or out the front of the instrument (front-action or side-action). Piston valves come standard on most student tubas, while most intermediate and professional models are manufactured with rotary valves.

Materials

The primary raw material used for making standard tubas is brass. Brass is an alloy composed of copper and zinc. Other metals that may also be added to modify the characteristics include tin and nickel. In addition to brass, other materials are used to make tubas. Most of the screws are composed of stainless steel. In some cases, certain surfaces on the instrument such as the valves or the sliding pipes are coated with chromium or a nickel alloy. This reduces friction and helps the pieces move more freely. Tubas manufactured from gold brass have a darker sound than yellow brass tubas, while those manufactured from rose brass have a very warm tone that can’t be reproduced by either of the other options.

The demand for tubas is much less than for other brass instruments such as trumpets or trombones. Consequently, production is usually not automated. As with any major purchase, the cost of a tube depends a lot on who makes it. Before buying, you need to think about your budget and skill level - the tube that suits you will be found in no time.
