Got this horn a year ago for playing in a regimental brass band. I have also used it to accompany hymns at church. I have been pleased thus far with its sound and intonation. In the low register it sounds like a trombone. In the upper register it sound like a cross between a mellow trombone and a french horn. Having played trumpet most of my life, I found it very easy to switch to (as a personal preference I did get a Yamaha alto horn mouthpiece). Overall fit and finish is good. My only complaint thus far is that the valves drip condensation/oil a bit after playing for 20 minutes or so. That being said it's not bad enough to make me want to replace it. For the money, it's a good horn, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to start on or switch to an alto horn and not spend much money in doing so. [btw, if you use Yamaha silent-brass mutes, the flugelhorn mute fits this just fine.]
