All tubas are written in concert pitch, which is cool because you don’t have to know things such as what “concert g” or “concert c#” means. It’s not cool because you have to learn different fingerings for different tubas, but oh well. Bb trumpet = C tuba. Low brass instruments are non-transposing, so none of that “written C sounds the name of the instrument” stuff applies.
