The problem with the weight of a sousaphone in my opinion is, that it comes very hard down on a small area of ones left shoulder.
That aside: If my memory serves me the German maker Glassl makes tubas (rotary and front action pistons) and sousas (Eb, BBb, 3 or 4 valves) in synthetic materials.
Their address can be found in an earlier posting of mine linked to below. Glassl has no website and the price level is high.
