Wrapped, or unwrapped?
Just the open bugle, or include all the valve tubing?
Do you want to include that D tuba Roger Bobo has?
One (clumsy) reference point:
Circumference of the earth is ~24000 miles.
1 mile is 5,280 feet.
Circumference of the earth is ~126,720,000 feet
BBb tuba is ~18 feet of open bugle, so, unwrapped, it would take 7,040,000 BBb tubas (tubae?) to circle the earth once. no?! si!
