I'm not sure if I would ever classify a 3/4 size horn as an all around instrument. If you are doing a lot of solo and small ensemble work it should be fine, but if you are going to be using t in a bigger group it may not be quite enough horn. I have a friend who uses a 3/4 Rudolph Meinl for everything and in an orchestral setting he has to work very hard. But then, Toby Hanks held the Minnesota job on a 184 Miraphone.
Just my$0.02 FWIW.
