Because a funnel-shaped mouthpiece is used on the Wagner tuba the range of possible playing techniques is almost exactly the same as on the horn. However, intonation on the Wagner tuba is more problematical than on the horn and the amount of air required far greater. Unlike horns, Wagner tubas are never stopped.
