Yeah, unless you don't know what to do with your money, it's really not necessary to have a back up.If I had the money to buy another horn I would rather spend it on a piano instead, or a bari or alto.
Same way that a car does.How does a horn give up on you? I had never heard of backup horns until reading of it on this forum. I guess it makes since for tours where your horn is with all the gear, and could become a speed bump.... Is that the type of scenario it's for? Or is this what we tell our wives to justify buying more horns? . Just curious, thanks
