Yep, I know about the four valve jumbos by king, I've seen your videos and the one you used to have was very neet. I actualy considered buying from you when you had it for sale on ebay. Thanks for the tip.

The OP/owner says it isn't the 'Jumbo' Buescher, but the 5/4 size (like the Conn 20k, Yamaha 411, etc.)
But since it has a 30" bell and .770" valve bore, it might as well be a 'hybrid' 5/4 - 6/4 sousa. It looks awesome, has 4 pistons, and the price seems very fair :tuba:

As of right now, I have already had someone offer to sell me a King Jumbo Sousaphone. If all goes well, then I will most likely go with that one, but I am still going to look at other options just encase I change my mind. I appreciate all the help and tips that people have sent me, and all of the generous offers that I have received. Thank you for all of these great opportunities to own such majestic instruments.

28" - Grand Jumbo Conn, model 46K. Looks like it may have been the one Steve had, which made it's way through Harv's Happy Horns or through Lee Stofer (can't remember which). Steve had both a brass one and the silver one (that lost has for sale), when I bought his silver Conn.

The craigslist ad looks to be the same one from a long time ago at Steve's place.
The only 46K that I played was loaned to me for one church service in Michigan.

I own a 4-valve Conn Grand Jumbo 48K--still play it for gigs and love its sound.
