Anyone have one lying around? 20K or 20J, doesn't matter.

Thanks!

Just checking, but you do know that they are not the same bell, yes? If you use the sousaphone bell on the concert tuba you will not be pleased at all. Likewise, the J bell on a K horn will point upwards a bit. The two bells use different angled bows between the collars and the flares.

Just trying to help...
I have no comment at this time.

Definitely! I have the curved portion from a concert bell, that I picked up from a local player. He bought a bell on eBay for his Sousaphone and it turned out to be a concert bell; while I had a sousa bell curve in my scrap pile.

A simple switcharoo and now I have the part to convert a sousa bell. :tuba:

$275 plus shipping. 20K naked lady sousa bell. 26" flare. Has dings, discoloration, and bell needs rolled out. I can have the dents and creases removed before shipping if you pay the extra cost of what the shop charges me. Or I can ship as is.
