1950 King H.N. White BBb Sousaphone.Sousaphone bell is 26" which is huge compared to what is being made now. This King plays better than the new instruments that they are making now. It plays well and sounds really loud! Missing three neck screws and screw to keep the neck from turning but these can be replaced. Has dents throughout but can easily be rolled out or played and enjoyed just the way it is. Serial number is listed in photograph.
Looks to be in good condition for its age. All the Slides and valves move well. They have good compression and the valves move fast. Instrument is in raw brass.  Will include a mouthpiece so it's ready to play. 
Body, bell and neck all original.  No case.
