I am not particularly proud of this but hopefully it shows the very basic tonal and intonation qualities - I'm not touching slides deliberately.

GREAT playing C tuba 4 pistons + 5th Rotor (flat whole-step). 19" Bell. Fits in a 1291/Sov Eb gig bag. Great sound, intonation, and response. Raw brass with a nice patina. Around 6-8 years old.
Excellent condition with only fairly infrequent orchestral outings. A few bruises on the bottom bow (easily fixed if desired - particularly with the raw brass finish!).
Designed by Nirschl, with parts made in Germany, assembled by Lamberts here in the UK. No bell engraving.
Only selling as I don't play it as much as I would like.
The fit-and-finish of this tuba is truly excellent - whoever put it together did a cracking job.
Sellmansberger fingerbuttons are staying with me - I have the originals...
Price is £5,000 firm - and worth every penny (imo!). No case or mouthpiece, although both can be negotiated.
Shipping Worldwide at cost. (Since I've checked, US Residential around $500(!), less to an airport I expect. Italy was around 150 Euro) Actual prices will vary.
Tuba leaves me once money cleared, no exceptions.

Questions here or PM me.
Trials welcome here in Hertfordshire.
Thanks!

THAT is a nice looking horn, and Peach is a solid dude (would've said bloke, but don't want to confuse folks).

What's the purpose of the lyre holder on the side of the 5th valve casing?

Lamberts installed a 'guard' which sits over the 5th valve. It is held in place via the lyre box. I've never used it. I may have it somewhere.
When they these together apparently Graham Sibley of the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (UK) assisted with a few pointers. He thought it could use the 'guard'.
I believe the CSO Yorks and the Yamayorks have a bit of a 'cage' shielding the 5th valve from the right hand.

Here's a YouTube link of me hacking away at a couple of scales on this tuba without touching the slides.
As I say - any failings are 100% mine. The low F sounds pretty shouty but that is just me and the tiny room!
Maybe I'll do another of these in a better space...

It's beautiful. Oh boy I hope whoever gets this beauty enjoys it, because I would grab it in a heartbeat if it were in my price range. Good luck!
