Speaking of which, here's my old Czech mellophone in C (' has a Bb crook that I never use). I have the original mouthpiece, but it plays much better with this tiny Bronx, NY Bach 22SC ("shallow cup") trombone mouthpiece.
Swapping clefs and fingering sets in my head, I can read treble F french horn literature and play it on this instrument. It's loads of fun, plays pretty well in tune, and my left hand (the pistons, like any other mellophone, finger right-handed) has learned how to tune the one or two notes that need a "nudge".
I got this instrument is virtually mint original condition with no dents and no piston wear for less than the price of a carton o' Camels (case, too), and no, its not... I am keeping it, thanks.
