Not to start up trouble, but I am often confused by the lengths of the different tubas given quite often on this net. Physics say this:
BBflat 19.34 feet
Cc 17.23 feet
Eflat 14.48 feet
F 12.9 feet
These figures are not however the physical lengths, as 60% of the bell diameter can be subtracted from these figures to get the actual length. It would seem these generally accepted lengths are fairly rough estimates of the actual lengths then.
