A unique piece from the beginning!

LECHGOLD - Tradition, innovation and passion
LECHGOLD wind instruments are perfectly tailored to ambitious musicians who place great value on reliability and traditional craftsmanship. The multi-stage manufacturing process and final inspection by a brass instrument maker ensures consistently high quality and the best intonation.

High quality stainless steel valves, F tuning, incl. mouthpiece and case
The LECHGOLD FT-15/6S offers a warm and multifaceted sound. High-quality brass valves ensure particularly easy running due to their low material weight. The careful manufacturing is carried out in an experienced brass instrument manufactory. Final assembly and quality control are carried out in the Upper Bavarian Alpine foothills by instrument makers with the highest level of craftsmanship.

The tuba is made of brass and the bell is made of high-quality gold brass and the slides of nickel silver. The diameter of the bell is 400 mm, the bore is conical and has a size from 19.6 to 21.2 mm. Furthermore, this tuba is equipped with Minibal® joints and has an extended semitone at the 5th valve and an extended whole tone at the 6th valve. Of course, the LECHGOLD FT-15/6S tuba comes with a matching mouthpiece and case.

The tuba is not varnished, which gives it a unique appearance from the moment you buy it. The patina, which increases over the years, gives the instrument an individual touch and will certainly remind you of many beautiful events.

Hard shell case
This LECHGOLD instrument comes in a sturdy case with trolley handle and wheels. So your instrument is well protected during transport.

Let LECHGOLD inspire you!

Unbeaten for the price

I bought the silver model and use a Denis Wick 3SL Heavy mouthpiece.
The tuba is used in smaller Egerländer lineups as well as an orchestra tuba (as 1st voice next to double bass tubas).

I am enthusiastic about the tuba. How much of the enthusiasm is due to the fact that the expectations at this price / model are rather low, I can not say exactly.

The tuba gets off to a good start. Especially in the difficult register between high F and high C, I find the response at least as good as a B&S 3100(!).
It pops too early in my opinion, but this can certainly be minimized with practice. Compared to tubas of the own brand of a music store in Upper Franconia, which cost almost 2,000 € more, the Lechgold is the clear winner in terms of response.

In the range between small C and large A, the tone is not properly centered and sounds somewhat dull. When playing with a mute (Yamaha SilentBrass), this is even more noticeable.
Nevertheless, I find the overall sound beautiful.

Intonation is not so easy with the tuba, it takes patience and a lot of trial and error.

The position of the valve pushers (right hand) is definitely for large hands or long fingers. I will change that by an instrument maker.
Also, for the left hand, the pushers are a bit far away compared to many common F tubas of the big brands.

Compared to the 3100, the left hand valves are in a different order, so some adjustment is required.

The case is okay, the lid basically goes on a bit sluggishly, so you have to help out when closing it. For the price, you can get over that - especially since I always use a gig bag.

Despite the small weaknesses, it is definitely a good instrument.
Great price-performance ratio

I bought the tube for a music buddy.
The workmanship is very good. Sonically also appealing. After a little trial and error, the intonation is also fine.
All in all, a very good instrument with a top price!
