A Guide to the Marching Baritone


Specially wrapped versions of the baritone horn have been created for use in marching bands and drum and bugle corps...

They have three valves and a front-facing bell and are the tenor voice of a drum and bugle corps, below the soprano voice of the trumpet, the alto voice of alto horn or mellophone, and above the low tubas.

Used widely across the USA, marching instruments and marching bands fill up stadiums and colleges, but are now becoming more frequently used over in Europe in jazz and street bands.
