If anyone knows a school band director that thinks the only afforable sousaphones are those Pacific rim junkers, please notify them that I have beautifully remanufactured like new AMERICAN fiberglass and metal sousaphones for very reasonable prices. (Fiberglass under $1500 Bright silver under $3000)
Thank-you very much for helping me and your band director friend.
P.S. I do NOT ignore the valves when I do these restorations. Instruments with worn valves either get new pistons or totally remanufactured (tip top quality Anderson Silver Plating Company job) pistons and casings.
