My favorite instrument. I actually play one of these in my HS's marching band.
Heres something that you all should know: Woodwind instruments suck. This includes flute, saxophone, clarinet, oboe, etc... basically, if it has a reed, it sucks and i dont like it. all bands should be drum corps style. Brass, Drumline, Pit, and Guard... thats all we need. The only reeded instrument I like is the Bagpipe. Popular to contrary belief, it is actually a wonderful instrument.
