Marching with this instrument for 4 years at Illinois State University, I've come to realize it not as a compromise to a concert Bb horn, but as a perfect solution as it mirrors the french horn's dynamics to a T. Intonation is very easy to control from the softest lows to the box popping highs, and the clarity of a full bore blast will knock you out of your socks. Beautiful instrument and very easy to maintain!
