Eb Over-The-Shoulder (OTS) Kummer & Schetelich Tuba

Manufactured by Kummer & Schetelich ca mid 1860's. Nickel Silver with 3 string actuated rotary valves. The horn is 54 1/2" in length and the Bell diameter is 12". A Shield on the Bell Garland states "Kummer & Schetelich Baltimore MD". This horn has a very large bore and bell, and produces a very deep and large sound. It is a very easy playing horn. I have included a picture of an identical horn with Brig. Gen. Slough's Brigade Band, taken in Alexandria, Virginia, between 1863 and 1865. There is also a closeup of the horn on the right of the Band picture. Thanks to John Bieniarz for the picture, and Mark Elrod for the Horn information.
