Description

Even the Romans held processionals and parades, oftentimes in celebration of their armies conquests and great deeds. And during those processionals, instruments like this Tuba, also known as the lituus, could be heard bellowing its notes. Of course, that is not the only use for an instrument, and this lituus was often used as a signaling horn among the Roman troops as well. This instrument is designed in the classic shape, being a high-pitched instrument that features a slight curve at the end. This instrument is made entirely from quality brass-metal and features a simple polished finish. The instrument also features carrying rings that allow it to be fastened to ones belt or baldric. Authentic re-enactors will no doubt enjoy this Tuba instrument, using it just as the ancient Romans did, while collectors of both Roman memorabilia and historical pieces will also consider this instrument to be quite the find.
