I hold the tuba in my lap with the aid of some of that plastic "shelf-paper" stuff (you know...) and generally my arm goes through the bow as opposed to over it, there were some lung capacity and tension issues when my arm went over to bow. It is true, however, that the tuba is harder to keep in position without having my arm over the bow, oh well...
