King JUMBO 4-valve Sousaphone - $6000 +s/h

Nobody thought I would sell it, not even me!

Pictures

Life for this sousaphone started as a three valve that was being played in a German polka band in Florida. I had a lot of work done to this, but the best part was having the fourth valve custom made. Is it a perfect instrument? No, but it plays and shakes everything!

Located in **Arizona

**Some things to consider:
1. I've got some extra parts in Michigan (braces and some parts that might be useful), the Wenger stand, and the giant case.
2. The Jumbo and the Yamaha Airlift stand is sitting three feet from me in Arizona. I have a box I could ship it in (I think it should fit - my Pit tuba was shipped in it).

Nearest time frame - apart from picking everything up yourself - is sometime 2019, before everything is out here in Arizona. It could probably be shipped on a pallet.

I remember this horn in its original configuration. It would indeed rattle the walls and break your back. That bell makes it look HUGE. With all the work done on it would be a great jumbo for the money. :)
