Some people can poop out notes below that (legitimately) down around GGG or FFF (but who cares)?
Mechanically, a three valve BBb tuba could be played down to the out-of-tune E below the "pedal" Bb, and a four valve one, theoretically, could be played down to an out-of-tune C# below "pedal" Bb.
Now, enough wasted time. Let's move up a couple of octaves and get some practicin' done. :-)
