I have a old tuba that I bought for $30 at an antique store today. On the bell it says,"Rudolf Wurlitzer Cincinnati, OH USA PROFESSIONAL" It s looks to be an EEb and has 3 valves. It is black and very dirty. What is the proper way to clean this horn with out hurting the brass because of it's age. It looks to be at least 75+ years old. Does anyone know anything about this old horn. I have not found a model number yet.
Thanks, Archie
