Judge a person by their questions...
I just signed up for college marching band and the biggest section is mellophones, with 35 people.
I’m going to suck at it so hard & everyone’s going to laugh at me. Also there’s the part where it’s not even a real instrument, and sort of just a weird cross between a trumpet and a horn sort of thing…( ；´Д｀)
Blech I don’t wanna
i know your feels. the mello kind of sounds like a duck, and it’s just kind of a cheap imitation of the horn sound.
Played correctly the mellophone is a heroic, soaring, middle voice in the bugle family. It is not an imitation of the F Horn sound, it is it’s own instrument from a completely different family of designs, in which there is already a dedicated french horn bugle. Playing the middle horn is what it is, we all have to occasionally double on alto(tenor) horn or Wagner Tuba and marching a mellophone is no different. You still get counter-melody, rips, suspensions, and 16th note runs on mellophone parts, and that is the highlight of being a mid horn in any capacity. So everyone needs to stop talking shit on the Mellophone, you sound like a trumpet with a bad ego.
