"That auction site" advertized a Conn 40k a while ago, and now a King. I'm curious, when did they make these 4 valve sousa's( or helicons, if appl.)? What are the bore/bell stat's and do they measure up to the quality of their lap-brothers; the tuba? As I do a lot of professional playing standing up, it might be a good move for me to try to find such an instrument. Thanks, Patrick
