Yes, that would be a great option. It opens up a can of worms regarding packaging/case/shipping, but if you can overcome that, I'd say that's the winner right there.


Yup. Both Bells And five ( 5 !! ) valves, please ! Then that will be the Winner !! :tuba: :tuba:

I can't even imagine where they would find room to put a 5th valve. :shock:

I still say the removable bell would make packaging better, not worse. Compare a French horn case for a screw bell horn vs a fixed bell.

If he's that worried about weight, I'd rather have a 3 valve horn with a nice kick slide than a 4 valve instrument
