alto horn


A small valved brass instrument in the key of E-flat related to various members of the brass family. Rarely used in modern ensembles as it was replaced by other instruments. The written range is the same as the cornet but sounds a major sixth lower (F-sharp to c3). The alto horn resembles a small upright tuba and can be found in English brass bands.
