While it is true that instruments in any key are allowed, they will not allow just any instrument. The horn still has to be bell front. No trombones, no sousaphones, and I don't know about french horns...I hadn't heard about those. This means that Yamaha can now sponsor corps, and many of the top corps will have brand spankin' new BBb convertable contras. I personally think that they should have stayed in the key of G, but the movement was passed by all but 2 or three organizations. Oh Well...
