I would use "mellow" rather than "brassy" to describe any of the BBb tubas I've played. Ultimately the tone required and the key of the instrument is determined by the scoring. In UK brass band arrangements, there are 2 EEb and 2 BBb tubas (or basses as they are commonly known). Typically in addition to being higher the EEb will have any frilly or melodic parts.

Concert Band, Wind Band or Wind Orchestra parts are normally playing by either a EEb or BBb tuba. In other words they do not use either the lowest end of the BBb tuba range or the highest end of the EEb range.

At least in the UK, CC and F tubas are rare - usually seen only in posh orchestras where the tuba player spends more time resting than playing ... you can tell I don't like or do much orchestral playing!

I plan going to college on all the instruments I currently play and I hope to learn those that I don't know how to play.

I plan on majoring in Music Ed. and Composition with a minor in performance maybe. I don't know what instrument to do or if I should do voice.

I am James, 18 yrs old, and live in the U.S.
I play a cruddy ancient Conn at home, and an almost as cruddy Yamaha at school.
I am self-taught.

I also play all instruments except saxes, trombone, and double reeds (but hopefully soon learning bassoon, whee!)
I'd say my main is piano, then maybe violin, or (French) horn, then tuba, then woodwinds and trumpet. I'm self-taught in all but violin (and now take lessons on piano).

I am also a composer, and I also have no idea what to do for college --- I'm a senior in H.S. next year.
