  1. Greetings. I own a Holton 111 E-flat sousaphone. The serial dates it to 1928. It has been lovingly cared for and is near mint condition. I use it for trad jazz gigs. All parts are original but I am looking for a back up neck and bits. Do you have any suggestions about where to look? The second bit accepts a European shank mouthpiece. I can’t really find much online. Thanks for your advice

    • Hello Jason. That sounds like a very lovely instrument. Unfortunately, no one has really been making E-flat sousaphones since the 1960s, so it is harder to track down parts. Your best bet is probably to have something custom made.
