Bb Sousaphone Marching Tuba by John Packer
The Bb sousaphone , or marching tuba, is the pure foundation of any bands sound. All the overtones of the other instruments depend on the lowest overtones to ring pure and clear. Why take a chance with just any instrument handling the bottom ? Step up to the bottom end of champions and royalty. Compare to King design.
- Great for use in the field, the JP2057 Sousaphone will fit incredibly well within any marching band, Trad Jazz band or even an early big band. You will find that with complete ease, the sousaphone can turn from a mellow bass instrument, to a roaring forward facing monster, suitable to blast any bass line that is needed.
