Sousaphone Graveyard

Have you ever wondered where Sousaphones go to die? Here is where. This is the ceiling of the warehouse at the shop.


These Sousas hang from chains in the rafters around 30 feet off the ground. Sometimes they get used, sometimes they don't. Sometimes I take one down to cut a giant patch out of. This picture would have been better in focus had I not been atop a very tall ladder...

  1. Oh my that is a lot of sousaphones, I was wondering if you could donate (Or sell) any of those sousaphones, because I do have interest in repairing maybe some of those brass sousaphones, if it is within reason of repair.
