    Just purchased a 1912 Hawkes Emperor 4v non compensating Cavalry style E flat tuba in reasonable condition.

    Needs a good clean but has nice tight valves. A few dents to remove and a part missing 4th. valve slide to be made up.

    It blows beautifully, so easy and in tune with a great clear bottom register.
