The best instrument ever. Pitched in F with over 5-6 octaves, one of the hardest brass instruments to learn and master. (I havent mastered it myself. Another 10 years for me. :-D) Mastering could take years and years and many hornists havent ever mastered this beautiful instrument. Heard in Wind Ensembles, Orchestras and Chamber Ensembles as many people who play horn cannot play well. Only determination and will power can get you to play this instrument well. Most people dont know that embouchre and air are the key to this instrument. Hard to play in tune when you start off. Once mastered this instrument can bring the very best out of you. Word.
John: You play French Horn?!?!? Are you kidding me?!?!? That instrument sucks!
Evan: No. It's the best damn instrument ever. Get it straight.
