Recent medical events have made me limit my playing, and it is time to cut back on the number of horns I have. I have a Schiller American Heritage 4 Valve Eb Elite Piston Compensating Tuba that I have been unable to really play for the last two years, so it is time to offer it up to anyone who might need/want a good Eb horn. The sound is nicely centered, and it has played well for me. It comes with a wheeled hard case, and I have included multiple pictures of the horn and the case. As one might guess from my user name, I am located in in a south suburb of Dayton, Ohio - basically the intersection of I-70 and I-75 - and would welcome anyone who might like to give it a playing session prior to purchase.
I am asking $ 700 for the horn and case if either picked up in Dayton, or within 100 miles of Dayton. If the horn would need to be shipped, add $ 150 to the price (chuckle, I am not Amazon!).
Here are the known specs on the horn:
- 18.9" Upright Bell
- 4 Monel Pistons-3 Top 1 Side
- Yellow Brass Leadpipe
- Chrome Plated Slide Ferrels
I have checked some sites that show the new horn for $ 1639.00, so am asking less than half that.
As the horn has seen little use, it is in excellent condition – valves are fine, slides are free and lubricated, no dents, one small blemish on the back of the bottom bow from sliding in and out of case. If interested, PM me.

Wow, that's Fletcher style: large bell, Parker cut and lead-pipe goes straight around the bell. PM sent.
