Walter is in Brazil this week inspecting the first production run of the J-700 tuba. If they pass inspection we should have our first batch in Elkhart no later than the end of September. MSRP (Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price)is set at $6,229 for lacquer and $7,069 for Silver.(See your W. Nirschl dealer for a quote or school bid.) To see pictures of the proto-type in Walter's shop click the "Geretsried" link at the right. To see the J-700 compared to some historical tubas, click "York Lineage".
