Tim, Welcome to the fold. I would go with something bigger than a 3/4 size. At least a full 4/4 size. It will give you a slightly fuller tone, yet it should not be too big for a small group if played with taste, nor will it limit you should you want to play with a band or small orchestra. Which horn to get is a loaded question. You will get as many suggestions as the people you ask. It depends on a lot of things such as budget, committment to the horn, etc. The best thing you could do is go to a place such as Dillon's, Woodwind and Brasswind, Tuba Exchange, Joe S's place (sorry Joe I can't remember the name), Brook Mays, Custom Music, etc. where you can play lots of horns and find one that fits with the help of a professional who knows what he is talking about.
