The Frunting Horn

In America it’s called a Marching French horn.
Why French? Why Marching? This picture is conclusive proof that
it can be played without marching.

How does it sound? Filthy! But it’s great fun.

Strangely it has no defined high notes. When you get to a top C
(as written for horn in F) there are no slots for the notes, you can
slide around anywhere, so it feels like an amplified mouthpiece.

It sounds filthy
