Note that, although euphonium and bass tuba are pitched in Bb, they are notated in C at the desired pitch.
Bass and Contrabass Tubas have
the same range of D1-F4 (although they can sometimes extend
down as far as Bb0).

The Orchestra: A User's Manual is a free resource and will remain so. It still receives between 8,000 and 16,000 unique visits per month from all over the world. See the testimonials. Thanks to all the donations, I have been able to create this responsive re-design. But the movies and sound clips recorded in 2004 do show their age. I would really like to re-record everything and add many more techniques, especially for solo and ensemble writing. I estimate this will cost around £30,000.
