Abbreviation of Tuba in English

• Jul 11, 2018 - 07:06

The abbreviation of Tuba in English is Tuba (preferred) or Tb, not Tu as appears to be in MuseScore (string 697). See, for instance these examples by American composer Charles Ives and English composer Edward Elgar:……-Symphony_No._1,_Op._55(orch._score).pdf

I think it should be changed in future versions. This is not a case of an unusual instrument but one that is standard in the contemporary symphony orchestra.
