The last time I checked with Custom music, the 4/4 Nirschl with a lacquer finish was priced at about $9800. These are great horns. They are not as easy to get around on as the 4/4 Hirsbrunners that I've played, but have a great "German" sound. (See previous posts regarding Rudolph Meinl tubas, etc.) Mine has an awesome low register for a 4/4 tuba, and is quite nimble in all registers.
The last time I offered it for sale on this BBS, I priced it at $7000. I'll now sell it for $6500 with an excellent gig bag. If you're interested, e-mail me and I'll provide any further information.
