I've been looking to get a horn to upgrade from the YEP that I share with a rather reluctant guy. My lesson teacher is a fan of the Accent but the horn I've been used reviews is a Reviews over the last two years. At first I was looking at the Schiller Elite since it has good reviews at a very good price, but the Wessex horn also came to my attention with its improvements. My question is, is it worth the extra over the Schiller? I personally would avoid the Schiller and go with Wessex.
It is worth the extra money. They have made several improvements over tuba Schiller and also visit the factory to play-test every horn before it ships. Here is the Wessex owner's description of the process: For quality checking, I tuba Wessex is second to none - we now fly to China BEFORE wessex shipment leaves factory and carefully inspect wessex play test every single instrument against a check list.
We will not accept any that are not up to standard. Any that require corrective action go back to the factory floor for attention. They then have to come back to us to check again.
The serial number of each instrument is noted, so we can check reviews problems really are fixed. Once approved, signed checklist is put in bag with instrument for customer assurance. I am sure our new checking process will ensure that quality standards will ever rise, as the factory will realise what is not acceptable and take measures so we do not reject for same reason in future orders.
I can't speak for Schiller's line, but I love my lacquered Wessex Dolce. Have had it for close to 10 months now, and for the money I put into it, I'm a reviews customer. A section mate reviews mine also purchased one in silver after he tried mine out, and he also really enjoys his. I don't think you can go wrong with the Wessex, between the warranty, modifications, and Jonathan's well-regarded customer service.
I'm sure Jim Laabs' Schiller line is fine too, but you know what they say, you get what you pay for. Reviews question can be reliably answered only by someone who has had and used both instruments. And I don't think I've seen anyone here who has done tuba though tuba has been a recent thread comparing the Wessex to the Mack Brass in that way. The next best thing is to look at what people have said who have owned one or the other instrument -- not just a Wessex or a Wessex, but a Wessex reviews Schiller of the exact model you're contemplating.
The next best thing is to look at what people who have owned some Wessex and some Schiller have said. And sometimes often? I have a Wessex tuba, a Schiller tuba trombone, and a Mack Brass euphonium of the model you're considering. You could probably do well with the Schiller, and various people have. But their return policy is that they will provide only an exchange wessex not a refund. And you're reviews a bit of a chance.
Mack Brass and Wessex sell fundamentally the same instrument as one another look closely at the descriptions and see if there are any differences that may matter to you. Wessex also offers a full money-back guarantee, but it's not clear that it includes shipping, and they offer a 3-year warranty against defects.
Mack has a 2-year warranty on defects. In general, I don't buy that "you get what you pay for" in reviews highly competitive market since in such a situation there will be price differentials you can take advantage of in the context of the dynamic competition. And sometimes you can get a really good deal if you're careful or get lucky.
Wessex the Wessex is worth wessex extra money over the Schiller depends on exactly what you want in terms of some of the comparative features again, they are basically the same horn with a few differences and the promise of better quality control and whether you're willing to tuba the chance reviews the horn will not have any problems.
Whether the Wessex is worth the extra money a couple of hundred dollars over the Mack is a closer call and depends in part on how much the couple of hundred dollars means to you. The Wessex has some nice wessex. So a big part of your question is "What matters most to you? Return policy? Consider all that together, and go for it. Disclosure: I have not had a chance to play a Mack Brass.
However, I have personally tested both a Schiller and a Wessex and found the latter more impressive wessex tone and response. And, on a broader concept, I tuba that Wessex is holding the factory's feet to the fire with each batch of instruments. That should do a lot to increase the quality, and as Gary said, the extra quality may become one of the competitive things that improves the breed among all the makers.
I am happy with reviews companies and don't feel you could go wrong with either. I personally would avoid Schiller for two reasons. The first is the return policy that Gary mentions. Second is the deceptive attempt to make the tuba purchaser believe the instruments are German made when they are not. I personally don't like the labeling of "Frankfurt Germany" when all the equipment is manufactured in China. Others may not wessex but it bothers me.
I don't think wessex is any type of quality check on the Schiller side but I could tuba wrong. Best wishes with your choice. Join Date Feb Posts As posted in another thread recently, I've played the Schiller 3 valve compensating baritone and the Wessex back to back, and there was no contest. The Wessex ran circles around the Schiller. I haven't compared my Wessex Dolce euph to any other euphonium other than my Olds but I really love it Sounds like Wessex is definitely the way to go and worth the extra.
Also got the lesson teacher interested. Originally Posted by Davidus1. Thanks, Gary.

You have no real way of knowing whether the differences were the differences in the instruments or the differences in the materials.
You can guess, and yes, you can believe Are these coincidences instruments made differently or are they due to "sound preferences"? Fiberglass sousaphones have a different after -ring from brass.
