An essential part of any marching band, the sousaphone was crafted specifically to be played while carried. With a similar build and playing style to the classic tuba, these instruments have a deep, smooth tone that projects clearly outdoors. Whether you’re in a band yourself, or are just looking for a new challenge, the sousaphone is an instrument you will love for years to come.
Developed in the 1890s, the sousaphone was not originally designed to be used for marching, but instead as a concert instrument. After a few design tweaks though, it was decided that it was much better suited to being carried. Today, the sousaphone is used in a variety of settings, but always staying true to its roots as a marching instrument.
The entire selection here has been expertly crafted, giving you an abundance of professional-grade options to choose from. If you’re here looking for a traditional design, start with the King 2350 Series Brass BBb Sousaphone. In the key of BBb and featuring oversized bracers with extra-large caps and guards, this sousaphone also has a 26" bell and a classic brass construction, making it one of the most desired band instruments available. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something with a greater focus on response and resonance, consider the Dynasty M890 USA Series 4-Valve BBb Sousaphone. With a .730" bore, a 26" bell and a 4-valve design, this sousaphone is an outstanding addition to any brass section.
There are even options with a fiberglass construction, like the Conn 36K Series Fiberglass BBb Sousaphone, giving you even more flexibility in your choice. In the key of BBb and with standard valve stroke action, this lightweight white pebble fiberglass sousaphone has a 26" bell, ensuring clear projection and a fantastic tone.
If you’re here choosing your first sousaphone, or are looking to upgrade your current instrument, you’re sure to find something you suit your specific needs as a musician. With a new sousaphone in your collection, you’re sure to be the most in-demand bandmate around.
