The tuba is a musical instrument that appears in the episode "Suction Cup Symphony."
It is a large brass instrument, with a large upwards bell, with three or four piston valves.
Outside of the series, tubas are the largest and lowest-pitched instrument in the brass family. Smaller versions do exist for easier travel and for standing while playing. They are played by buzzing air past the lips into the a mouthpiece. Tubas are most commonly found in marching bands, either as wearable sousaphones or shoulder tubas (called contrabass bugles); concert bands, orchestras, chamber ensembles, and military bands.
