    Not a clue. To begin, they use a lot of rotary stuff that isn't very common or standard in America. I honestly wouldn't even be surprised if it was a complete custom horn that someone made.

    That's what I thought. Mouthpiece also looks to be a deep vee flugelhorn piece..just bigger than normal.

    The mouthpiece is quite big - I thought it was a "rotary valve trombone" when I saw it in another video (this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNt-YWuzmx4 ) - and I thought it would have about the same range as the euphonium I once played.

    I'd call it a compact trombone, due to the bell size, tubing length, and mouthpiece.

    I stand corrected, it is a bass trumpet in Bb.
