Based off of my knowlege, it's also known as a "Frumpet" or a "marching horn." It's basically what French Horn players play in marching band, being that it's awfully hard to play Horn standing.

On the topic of picillos, I don't mind it. My best friend owns a picallo, even if she's not allowed to play it until she achives first chair in high school. We're still middle schoolers, and I happen to be first chair, it's sort of impossible at the moment.

Speaking of marching bands, our 9-12 high school (1400 students) has a marching band of over 200 people.

That's amazing. Ours spiked in numbers the year that they made a trip to Philidalphia to march in a parade on Thanksgiving, but it made a major drop afterward. People just like making big trips I guess. ^-^
