I don't think that any Martins were made by Conn. I say this because Martin had their own tooling and I don't recall ever reading that that Conn became a stencil producer for their line. I may be wrong and if I am I would appreciate others filling me in on the details. I am always happy to be educated.
That said, I also liked the Reynolds tuba-haven't ever tried a Reynolds sousa. I have tried an older Olds (no pun intended) sousa and really like it. Since Reynolds and Olds were rather similar I would guess that a Reynolds sousa would be good.
