WTB - Tiny Sousa

Postby Dan Schultz » Mon Dec 11, 2017 11:40 pm

Yeah... you read it right! I'm looking for one of those 'tiny sousas' for a new project. You know the ones I'm speaking of. Like the crappy ones that can be found on Fleabay from some Chinese and Indian sources. They are pitched the same as a Bb baritone. (or so the sellers say!)

Valves aren't important. I'll take a whole one (cheap!) ... or just the bell and bugle.

If you got suckered into buying one of these ISO and want to unload it... give me a shout.

Well... I was offered one of the Indian sousas but the bell was too large for my use and the material was some unknown 'tinny' substance.

I was also offered an old Harry B. Jay but it's in too good of shape for me to whack up for a project.

Soooo.... I'm still looking.

In addition... I would also like to buy a smashed up Instrument Shaped Object like a euphonium/baritone with four .600" - ish rotors. One like the Violin King in Texas used to sell would work for me. These can still be found on Fleabay for around $400 new but I'm holding out for one that is trashed and somewhat cheaper.

Still looking for a mini sousa parts horn and a rotor section from a 4V euphonium.

I have a 3 valve miraphone I would sell cheap, but it's not smashed up or anything. Message me if you're interested.

If it had four rotors, I'd be seriously interested. Of course.. if it had four rotors you'd probably keep it!

It "had" 4 rotors, I removed one and put it on my king euphonium. The low range stank on it anyway. it plays much better as a 3 valve instrument
