    Just saw this horn listing on Ebay as a "Getzen Trumpet." Looks like a flugelhorn to me but it is not configured like other Getzen flugels I have seen. Any comments????? Thanks.....

    Looks like a marching valve trombone or marching baritone horn/etc....

    It ain't either a trumpet or flugelhorn. It's either a marching baritone or euphonium, and a decent price for such I'd say.

    I am quite sure it is a marching instrument, perhaps a mellophone in F.

    Def a marching Baritone. Getzen Euph has a larger bell and the bari mpc would not fit in the mellophone.

    Nice horn for the money. Just avoid the infamous Frumpet!!

    Getzen Marching Valve Trombone.

    The Bell is not a Eupho or Bari (too narrow) 0 just look at the bell only, and it will take a trom mute. Great doubling instrument, it is just an octave lower than trumpet.

    Marching bass trumpet? I once had a band director that called this Getzen marching valve tbone type a "baritone", until a euphonium player finally corrected him...

    It looks like a flugelbone. I remember reading that DEG produced them for a while.

    Kanstul makes one, their model 955, that has a very similar wrap.
