WTB: Old Style King Sousaphone Necks and/or Tubing Bits

Post by scaringellidt »

I recently came across 3 60’s King Bb Sousaphones. Looking to purchase necks and/or bits for those to make them complete!

I believe that is what I am looking for, Dan. I have one that I found on eBay and it fit the receiver.

Those two necks are essentially the same except for one rides lower than the other. They are the same length and should not change intonation.

Dan, I can barely make out the numbers on what looks to be a very helpful diagram. Would you have a larger or higher res one available?

Thanks!
