Neat sousaphone :!: I'd like to give it a whirl, but it's on the opposite side of the country. Looks to be about the size of a Yammy 411 or Conn 20k.
I think Tinker had/has one of these.

Ya think MAW got his valve idea from this short-action Holton :?: :mrgreen:

Just a note, I saw this same horn on another site with additional pictures and noticed that the valve section is not actually currently attached to the rest of the horn. Should be an easy fix for a tech, but something to take into account. These are essentially identical to Conn 20K sousas in terms of the size of the bugle, if I'm not mistaken.

Yup... I still have a short-action Holton. Fun horn. And to echo another poster... I can clearly see that the valve section is not attached to the horn. Not a 'biggie' for me but could be a problem for someone who wants to use it 'right out of the box'.
