    Concerning trombones, the theory is that the farther an instrument sticks out, the greater the chance of a collision and its related damage. Compact is supposedly better. Also, don't forget that wearing a Sousaphone beats carrying a tuba. This solution is obviously an improvement, rather than the dubious concentration of the entire mass of a relatively heavy instrument in front of the player that other instruments mentioned exhibit.

    Different marching styles can also play a role - the inclination to use a marching euphonium/baritone/valve trombone is greater when more motion is involved.

    Plus:

    is an ordinary valve trombone in a tighter wrap, so convenience for stage groups/etc. is available, too...
