*FOUND*: Pres. Hall Jazz Sousaphone

Post by Tom »

UPDATE:
**THIS INSTRUMENT HAS BEEN RECOVERED**


Spreading the word to see if Tubenet can help my friend Ben Jaffe of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band in New Orleans get his prized sousaphone back. According to Ben it went missing last Saturday after a show in New Orleans.

It is a lacquered 3 valve BBb sousaphone by Mario Corso. Numerous dents and dings, but its a real player. Large black and white "Preservation Hall New Orleans" lettering on inside of the bell.
