On the contrary, the contra sounds much better than the sousaphone. Its tone and handling is much more similar to a concert Tuba than a Sousaphone is usually producing a cleaner and purer tone than a sousaphone does.
That being said, its size and handling is much more challenging than the sousaphone and is not practical for most high school students.
And before you ask, while my name is "WW Guy" I marched Contra in DCI as well as Sousaphone in every other marching experience I have had.
