This is a good place to use the Priviledged Harmonics.  These are 
available on most combinations of valves and are also known as False 
Harmonics.  Many people find they can play bottom F on Open.  If you 
can find the note with false fingering practise it, and it can become 
as strong (or stronger) than a correctly fingered note.  All notes 
from f# down to pedal C are available using this technique.	
I only learnt about it recently from the Tuba-Euph mailing list but 
it really does work and can be mastered pretty quickly.
