WTB - Barcone Sousa-Shaped Baritone

Postby Dan Schultz » Tue Nov 27, 2018 12:54 am

I'm looking for one of the sousaphone shaped baritones. Don't care if it's a Barcone or other make. Prefer a 'beater 'cause I can fix 'em. I don't care about the valves. Basically... all I want is the bell and body.

I have a couple of barcone-sized sousaphones out in the garage.
They came from an elementary program.
I recall one is Eb and one is either Bb or BBb, but I won’t get out there until tomorrow to dig ‘em out and check. Gigs today...

Don't know what you need it for, but I found them and they are those Kris Kratt "mini" sousaphones.
BBb and Eb.
The Eb seemed about 21" OD for the body with a 19" bell.
The bell joint was about 3 1/2" OD on the female side.
I've got 1 neck between the two and I didn't even look at the BBb too closely, although it's very similar in size.

What I'm shooting for is a very large-ish F horn type of horn in Bb with four pistons or rotors. I probably need to start with a Bb mini-sousi to get the tapers to work with a valve section of about a .600" bore. Thanks for having a look.

Ooh you’re building a bass horn?

Definitely following this!
