My usage is probably irrelivant, as I play anything from small ensemble blues to theater oriented brass band-kettle punk. I also have enough other intruments to choose from if I feel that the work requires a different horn. However, I am curious to know why you feel that your sousa's would work for serious ensemble playing. And while I'm at it: your very gracious in your praise for your King Bell front. Can you elaborate? What do you get out of that instrument that you can't get out of...say, the Conn sous(assuming they're comparable)? Thanks, P.
