Sousaphine is cooler then the tuba, especially when you sit with the tuba player blasting RIGHT IN YOUR EAR. Sousaphone cant do that hehehehe

I prefer DCI contras even though I've never picked one up.

I just like the contra because I see it as more of a physical challenge andits easier to do a right lateral than with a sousa.

A lot of colleges actually use Sousies over contras, think of the Script Ohio of Ohio State with there Sousaphone that dots the "i."

I have a very old and cruddy 3/4 convertible that I use at home, and after "experimenting" with it, I'd much rather play a contra than a Sousaphone. Plus, even the best Sousaphones have a tone far inferior to true tubas and contras. Come to think of it, are Sousies even allowed in DCI?

I know for sure that sousies are not allowed in DCI. Only Contras, Baritone, Euphionium, Trumpet, Mellophone, Flugelhorn, and maybe Valve Trombone, but I'm not sure on that one.

Yeah I'm graduating. It sucks because I think that this coming year's show theme is going to be better than this past year's. I think it was a pretty hard theme to top.
