I have read a lot about Conn vs. King sousaphones in the tuba net. Beside a Hirsbrunner BBb tuba I play a Besson International Sousahone in a New Orleans/ Dixielandband.
In Switzerland we get second hand nearly only Besson- and some Reynolds Sousaphons from the swiss army bands. So it is not easy to find a Conn Sousaphone to try.
Who has experiences either with Conn- and Besson Sousaphones? What kind of differences have you worked out? I think of Conn 20K. What is about the 36K- model to say?

Thanks a lot
