Since the same bell tenon and socket are used on King sousaphones and the older-model King tubas, if you can find an upright King bell, you can have a raincatcher sousaphone. Also, I have tried the upright Conn bell used for the 21J/25J tuba, and it fits the 20K sousaphone (sounds really good, too).
Conn-Selmer (UMI got bought out by the parent company of Selmer) will not provide upright bells for "obsolete" concert tubas, so why would they bother to make them for sousaphones?
