Tenor girl. I managed to break my horn on the last day of high school. The bell twisted and the pads no longer cover the holes. they told me it would be cheaper to get a new horn than fix it. My hubby got me another horn for Christmas on year but then I discovered not all Tenors are alike. My hands were too small to reach the octave key without depressing the palm keys. So that horn went back.
now I know I have to find one that has the octave key tilted to the palm keys and not to the other side of the thumb rest. I have considered downgrading to an alto for space efficiency on the bus, but I just love the mellowness of the tenor.
