This Conn Fiberglass Sousaphone is in overall good condition and it plays easily and sounds Great! The bell is 24' in diameter and the bell collar is 6' in diameter. The body is in good condition, the paint has a few scratches and scuffs but nothing too bad and appears to have been repainted recently. The brass tubing has a few smaller dents and dings but overall nice condition, I have pointed to these areas with red arrows in the pictures. The tubing has some lacquer wear and scratches as you can see in the pictures.
The valves are free and they operate smoothly. The tuning slides are free. The mouthpiece receiver/leadpipe is in good condition. The bracing is solid.
The bell looks nice, it
