I have never heard of a "Malaphone." Perhaps you are thinking of the Mellophone? This instrument is sometimes described as a "Marching French Horn," which is pretty accurate. It is pitched in the key of F like the Horn, but is shaped and held basically the same as a trumpet. Most mellophones have a very large flaring bell, much more like a Horn than a trumpet. They have piston valves, rather than the customary rotary valves on the Horn. The advantage of using a Mellophone for marching band is that it allows Horn players to play "bell front" or toward the audience rather than pointing toward the backfield as a Horn would.

Ran about one hundred meters or so, have been able to see the north face winter coats outside, I saw two women and one man is fighting with the soldiers of the group dressed in medieval armor, a dozen archers greeted the blue he asked from time to time in the periphery. The more dramatic the human body is a long neck, but it is a monster of a bull's head and a green skin and blue hair, the face ugly little monster, is assisting the two women and one man fighting."What is that thing?" Mo Floor whispered."Do not know the future will know our hands"north face promotion code said, remove the dark months goddess of sigh, and remove more than 10 arrows, arrow bunch down into the ground.
