    Your horn will be keyed in the key of C and not B flat.

    So, you will need to play a step down on your horn to play Bflat soprano sheet music.

    You will be able to play piano music along with a piano without transposing.

      yes  that would be the case no transposing when acompanied by piano.. so do you think this is a good instrument in terms of price and quality?

        Check your other thread.  Can't say there's any good news at this point.
