An English horn is a woodwind instrument, a member of the Oboe family, about one third longer than an oboe and souding a perfect fifth lower. It makes its sound by the vibration of a double reed, again much like an oboe.

A tuba is a low brass instrument, also pitched in the key of F. It makes sound by the buzzing of the lips into a mouthpiece, much like a Trumpet.

The two are quite dissimilar instruments.
