A tuba.

Etymology 1

edit

From Latin tuba (tube, trumpet, military trumpet), first borrowed as a historic term in the 18th century. The name of the modern instrument was borrowed in the 19th century from German Tuba (tuba), originally Baß-Tuba (literally bass tuba), from the same Latin source. The Latin term is of obscure ultimate origin, but is possibly connected to tībia (shinbone, reed-pipe), see there.
