    An F mellophone can easily overpower 4 Bb trumpets. My marching F mellophone is a Yamaha. Once in a while I sneak in an adapter to play my old Farkas FH mpc. Still doesn't have the lilt of a true FH. I often squeak on woodwinds also, but our daughter doesn't since she learned to play them very well.

    If all those instruments were animals you would call the collection a ZOO.

    If memory serves correctly, c. 1948 Osgood came up with a 3 dimensional paradigm showing possitive and negative effects (transfer of training) of one task upon another. It might help.

    LOL... Thanks. The only thing missing from my collection is a sax (which I also know how to play). My daughters (both of them) played sax in school band. They (like me) became versatile and multi-instrumentalists and played "musical chairs" in the school band.
