A low pitched intrument made for the bassline of a band. With out a good bassline the entire band would fall apart making tubas a main need for bands. Ive also included the following definitions
The case is perfect for hiding dead bodies
The instrument is perfect for ramming someone against a wall and beating the shit out of them litterally..

the last major instrument to be introduced to the modern symphony orchestra; a refinement of all others that preceded it, having a conical bore, large cup mouthpiece, and low, unpiercing mellow sound, unless some of the guys from the tuba section of the marching band at the Univesity of Southern California have a blow on one (or 16). May be upright, with a recording bell (this is a "recording bass," not a "recording tuba"--it replaced string basses on early recordings), helicon, sousaphone, or a silly marching version. I have played them all!
(from the latin tuba, meaning trumpet)

The proper name for a tuba player is "tubist," which is a shortened form of "tubaist," which is considered archaic. (Ask your local professional tuba player for details.)
Didn't Gene Pokorny play a great tuba solo in Petrouchka tonight?
