I have a friend that has a Conn 4v Eb Sousaphone but I do not know the model of it. The horn is one of the naked lady models. He also has the same model King that I do and he prefers the King for some reason. Another friend has had several of the old conn Eb tubas ans sousaphones and he said he has yet to find one with a stong B flat below the staff. I would not say they are all that way but the ones he has owned that I tried all had that weak feeling B flat below that staff. Maybe they corrected that problem with the 26k.
My King Eb is wrapped like a BBb so it is smaller than the average sousaphone in outer dimension and is not for those with a large waisline either due to the tight wrap and is probably less comfortable than the conn as well. I do like for me though, it fits me well.
