YORK-aholic,

A quick look revealed a much older sousaphone bell priced at $250. I'll offer the Martin Mammoth
bell and stack for $300 to you and you paying the shipping and packaging costs to your site. If interested
I can take some pics today.

Yeah, I may have accidentally bought that one. I have a complete Mammoth valve section sitting here. If the pistons fit, I'm in business, if they don't, a little bit of soldering and I'm in business...

I have got to stop buying these things, or else start selling some of them. Otherwise, my place is going to look like Lost's must: tuba store room with a bit of living space squeezed in among them!
I have the same problem. Need to sell some of this heavy metal. :)

Here's a mammoth sousaphone bell.

I vaguely remember the comment that at least their tennons matched. And looking at both a recording bell and a sousa bell, they seemed the same depth front to back. Sousa bell just spread wider.

If ya happen to try it out, let us curious types know how it works...
Thanks for playing!
