Stunning 3 Valve 100% BRASS Sousaphone With Big 25 Mouth Piece Item No: MI 031 Description:- The sousaphone is a valved brass instrument with the same tube length and musical range as other tubas. It’s shape is such that the bell is above the player’s head and projecting forward. The valves are situated directly in front of the musician slightly above the waist. The bell is detachable from the instrument body to facilitate transportation and storage. It is manufactured from sheet brass, usually silver (Chrome Plated), much like many brass instruments. It is in the key of Bb, and the instrument’s part is usually read in “concert pitch”. Short History: The first sousaphone was built by James Welsh Pepper in 1893 at the request of John Philip Sousa, who was dissatisfied with the hélicons in use by the United States Marine Band. Some sources credit C.G. Conn with its construction, because of the first sousaphone he built later in 1898. Sousa wanted a tuba-like instrument that would send sound upward and over the band, much like a concert (upright) tuba. The new instrument had an oversized bell pointing straight up, rather than the directional bell of a normal hélicon.
