How difficult is it to switch brass instruments?

I used to be pretty good at playing the tuba, but I stopped a couple of years ago as I was (literally) being pushed to the back of the band and never really got a chance to play anything but bass lines.

I want to get back into brass though so that I can play in bands again, would it be very difficult to get into trumpet or French horn?

I would assume valve placement would be identical? (I played both 3 and 4 valve tubas)

Phillip Farkas, one of the best horn players of all time, began on the tuba. I'd definitely go with the French horn. Get lessons right away. From a real horn player, not some useless high school music teacher who thinks she understands the instrument. A Farkas medium deep cup mouthpiece is excellent to start with. Do the warmup in "The Art of French Horn Playing" slowly EVERYDAY. (The prewarmup and the first three after that.) There's absolutely no way around this if you want to be a good horn player. Read "The Art of French Horn Playing." Like, actually read it. Often.

Please please don't pick the trumpet. You'll regret it forever. I played trumpet for five years. Sure you'll get "fun" parts, but nothing majestic, and certainly nothing beautiful.

Valve placing isn't even relevant (It can be picked up in a matter of hours.) Tuba is in C, while trumpet is in Bb and horn is in F.
