Walter Nirschl 4/4 CC Tuba for sale

Postby Scott Sutherland » Wed Mar 14, 2018 1:56 pm

4/4 Nirschl CC for sale. Great condition with just a few dents on the bottom bow. Wonderful, flexible sound with plenty of core. Projects very well. Intonation is very good, better than other 4/4 Nirschl CC's I have played. This has been my main tuba for over 5 years, from orchestra to quintet, solo recitals to soundtrack recordings.

This tuba was used on my Bohemian Rhapsody YouTube video" target="_blank" target="_blank" target="_blank
as well as film scores including Batman v. Superman.

$9,500.00 USD (or best offer)

Buyer to pay for shipping from Carlsbad, CA

Let me guess why you are selling it. You are an Eastman rep and they are sending a couple of horns and this one doesn't fit the picture.

Great horns. "Perantucci Mods" means nothing, it was only an engraving so that Custom Music could tell us we were buying something special. It was special, it was just the same special other places sold. I used one for the last 15 years of my career. Lots of work on everything just worked great on a Nirschl. Great pitch, great response... buy it and you'll be happy.

About 10 or 11 years ago, I tried one of these and absolutely loved it. Still, one of the best tubas I've ever played. I badly wanted to own one, but decided it was too expensive, and that I would wait for a used one... and the used ones are so few and far between, I simply had to move on.

Probably the total opposite from my sound concept now, but I still see this and wonder "what if..." :tuba:
