It's official. Forget all those horrible sharp keys used
by others. The Jazz key of Bb is what nature uses. A recent
report states :-

Astronomers have found, for the first time, sound waves 
from a super-massive black hole. The "note", pitched at
B flat and fifty seven octaves below middle C, is the 
deepest ever detected from any object in the Universe. 
And the tremendous amounts of energy carried by these 
sound waves may solve a long-standing problem in astrophysics.

You'd need one enormous tuba to get down that low though.

For those interested, there is more info at :-
