The "Mellophone"

The Mellophone is a medium-range instrument which typically takes the place of the French horn in marching bands. Its appearance is similar to that of a trumpet except for more tubing and a much larger bell.

The instrument in our collection was purchased on eBay. It was described as a Yamaha "Marching French Horn". It is pitched in Bb (and is a transposing instrument), though French Horns are typically pitched in the key of F.
