Description: Tuba - Walter Nirschl 4/4 CC Tuba for Sale
Walter Nirschl "Perantucci" WN-15 CC tuba. Purchased new from Custom Music in 1998 from a batch of 6 and I have been the only owner. Serial number 09795. 4 front action piston valves of .748/.787” bore and right thumb operated 5th rotor valve of .828” bore. The upright bell measures 19 inches in diameter. This is a wonderful instrument with a gorgeous, even sound, wonderful pitch and an extremely resonant low register.
In my approximation this is a larger 4/4 and served me very well in my time with the USAF Heritage of America Band. I have used this instrument in orchestras, various military bands, chamber and solo settings with great results.
There are a few belt buckle scratches and dings that can be expected in a horn of its age. Plating is 98% intact and the instrument is gorgeous when polished!
The horn is being ultrasonic cleaned at the moment and will be fitted with synthetic felts after cleaning. Photos will be available NLT than Wednesday.
Price is $8500 and includes a black leather Cronkhite gig bag that is in like-new condition. Horn is located in Normal, Illinois and I am more than willing to meet the new owner within a 150 mile radius of the current location. Normal, IL is serviced by Amtrak and Greyhound and could arrange shipping via a carrier of your choice.
