I recently purchased a vintage E-flat tuba made by Henry Distin Manufacturing Co. of Williamsport, PA. I know the horn must be about 100 years old, and that Distin used to work for J. W. Peppers. Does anyone out there know anything else about the horns, or how to check their age? If anyone has played any of these instruments, I would be interested in your feedback.
