Re: Sousaphone Purchase
My first experience was 20 years ago. HD bought 10 sousaphones because they were so inexpensive. Four years later we were lucky to frankenstein together 4 working instruments. I said never again. Fast forward 15 years. Both and I our then Asst. FAD play tested some 4 valve sousas at TBA and we both liked the Jupiter. So, our district bought every HS a bunch of Jupiter 4 valve sousas. while not nearly as bad as the ones from 20 years ago, we all have had major issues with the valves. We can't keep a single one working for an entire marching season.
Fool me twice, shame on me. I will only go with the King 2350W from now on.
