My Holton has worked very well in orchestral situations. Brian F has played it, Floyd Cooley, Chris Olka etc.
I have used either an Alex F or more recently a Nirschl Eb for faculty quintet but every time we do a Bach Contrapunctus, or last week the Colchester Fantasy by Ewazen--the trumpet and trombone profs ( and the past trumpet prof) all prefer the tone and intonation of the Holton in a brass quintet. It also works well on the Malcolm Arnold. but it would never work on the Bozza and the the F was fantastic on the Etler. So-for a large amount of quintet work my colleagues past and present have asked for the Holton!!!!
