Sousaphones

The largest producers of sousaphones today are C. G. Conn and King (originally owned by H. N. White), Jupiter and Yamaha. Most modern sousaphones are 3 valve BBb (double b-flat) instruments - if you are buying a sousaphone for a school band student, this is what you should buy, unless told otherwise by your instructor. Eb sousaphones are still common in parts of Europe. Sousaphones with 4 valves are less popular than the 3 valve models, due to their additional cost and significantly greater weight (nearly twice the weight of a 3-valve sousaphone) but are still being manufactured by Miraphone - a German band instrument company.

For professional quality sousaphones, we highly recommend Woodwind & Brasswind. A trusted name in band instruments for 30 years, Woodwind & Brasswind offers a hassle-free return policy, a 45 day low price guarantee and purchase assistance from their knowledgeable sales staff. Among the products they carry: world-reknowned Conn and King instruments, along with the more budget-friendly Yamaha and Jupiter lines.

If you're looking for a student sousaphone, you may also want to check out Musicians Friend - a source of musical instruments since 1983, known for their award-winning selection, values and customer service. Musician's Friend features affordably-priced student sousaphones.

Most of the sousaphones on this page are available in several finishes (silver, lacquer, satin...) and you can purchase the instrument only or select a package which includes a case and/or stand. See item details for specifics.
