Is it not the case, however, that rebuilt Conn and King sousaphones are reasonably readily available, and at prices that are relatively attractive compared to new instruments?
For a school, especially one which has concerns about price and availability, I think rebuilt horns would be an excellent choice. (Not to mention good business for all you repair mavens out there, even if it's not as much fun as rebuilding that old York or converting a BBb to a CC)
