Schiller Elite Wagner Tuba
- Customer Reviews (1)
This is a very unique instrument. It combines a French Horn with a Tuba and was originally designed for composer Richard Wagner. The sound of the Wagner tuba is mellower than that of the horn and sounds more distant, yet also more focused.
Schiller Instruments has put the heart and soul back into the original Wagner design. Using the same blueprints for the tuba that Wagner was inspired by in 1853 Schiller has replicated exactly the sound and tone this horn was created for.

Robert M. - Monday, January 20, 2020I have been playing my Schiller Wagner Tuba for nearly two years now and it is the joy of my life. Nicely constructed, beautifully finished, wonderful tone. My band leader’s initial comment was, “What the hell is THAT?” But he became fond of it too. I usually play baritone horn for public work and keep the Wagner for home practice. They seem to complement each other. I have even now mastered replacing the string returns after a few bumbling attempts. At age 70 I must admit I finally found my instrument. Thank you, Jim Laabs! Five stars for this horn!
