Do you mean you want to trade your King 1260 Eb sousaphone for a BBb sousaphone?

Post a couple of pictures. Although you might have an easier time selling it and using the funds to buy a BBb.

Yes, not many would want this trade if they have what you are looking for. Your best bet is to sell yours locally (no shipping costs, no BS) and then save that money and search for what you want. Trading is the best way to go, these days, but with shipping prices so high but shipping quality so low I would only trade face-to-face with the two of you meeting at the midpoint between you. Since moving from a BBb to an Eb is not such a common sousaphone trade, the idea of selling yours and then buying what you want is probably going to be faster. (If you were wanting to trade a very commonly owned horn for another very commonly known horn this I would be advising you differently.)

I also agree that you need to post well lit high resolution shots of your horn, including a shot of the slides and pistons by themselves to show wear. Run the serial number to find out how old it is. Tell us of any modifications it has had that you know of. Set a realistic price. This horn will sell, but it may take you some time.

Best of luck, sir!
