    While it looks nice and I can see the advantages of it, is it possible to put a rotary 5th valve attached to it for those rare times you may have to play The Holst 1st Suite in Eb for example?

    I tried this instrument out at TUSABTEW. It has a suprisingly dark tone when played softly--and it can get extremely soft--and gets a nice but not annoying edge when pushed. It's a unique experience playing with the bell right in front of your face. It definitely plays more like a euphonium than a valve trombone or bass trumpet, but I think the overall sound is different enough from a real euphonium that I would not want to see one in a concert band. The valves felt really good, perhaps with a lever travel that was a little longer than necessary, but very smooth. I did not notice any glaring intonation problems (other than what you'd expect with a non-comp instrument) with my quick test. The foam-body case they had with it was larger than it needed to be. I'd be interested in a gig bag for maximum portability in regional jet overhead bins. Overall, a really fun instrument!
