And I am an American hybrid bell-front horn player, Wessex BR115, not a euphonium player, converted from both trumpet and tuba, filling in a hole in my community band. So my approach to the instrument is even different, having to approach from the perspective of blending with both woodwinds and brass. For me, the only drawback to using a 6 1/2 AL was a little bit of graininess in the low register, which the King SBBA did solve, but I like the response of the SM6 Ultra better. With my bell front, I'm always getting "the hand," even when playing a tutti section with trombones.
