WTB Small Shank MP for Eb Sousaphone EDITED

Postby Larry6153 » Mon Mar 13, 2017 12:19 am

As the title says, I would like to find a small shank Eb tuba/ sousaphone mouthpiece.
The Receiver measures .5325"
Not sure what brands are available, but I think a Conn 4 would work.
You can email bullfiddlelarry@gmaildotcom.
Thank you, Larry

I have a Conn 4. It's a TINY mouthpiece, personally I don't think it's appropriate for tuba. I keep it as a contrabass trombone mouthpiece

Denis Wick 1,2 or 3 without the L should work just fine.

you really shouldn't be worrying about a mouthpiece until you find a set of bits that fits that horn

Thanks Mark, you're right, and a great resource. I only have one bit, and I imagine it will be next to impossible to find another for a Harry B Jay Eb sousaphone. It was probably a poor decision to purchase the horn without more knowledge. Now that It's done, I would like to, at least, get to play around on it.
Not sure what the next step would be other than find a mouthpiece that will fit the bit I have. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
