I was taking some pictures for the Woodwind Forum's annual calendar project and thought I'd share one of my out takes. Can you name this instrument. Bonus points for finding a performance with this instrument in it. :mrcool

When my ex-girlfriend was working in a primary school she once gave a bunch of kids pictures of instruments to write the names of underneath... one paper came back with, under the picture of the trombone, the 'word' Thramp. Technically wrong but- if a trombone wasn't called a trombone, I'd personally condier the thramp an excellent alternative!

Fascinating - I love obscure instruments. The nearest I can come up with is a thing called the sudrophone but this looks a lot smaller and simpler. Maybe a soprano version?

Yes, Keith is nice, almost as nice as Brian but we've seen this sort of thing before on here some months ago. I think it was a JAZZOPHONE.

Indeed, and a Keilwerth Toneking 3000 Jazzophone by the looks of it.

Pete,
The band leader raised his hand to make sure that it all ended correctly, instead of disguising problems with a fade out and a loud drum final passage.

Do you think that you could devote at least three pages of "Taming the Saxophone" helping and training us to perform this difficult task?

Apologies for being serious.

Mondo points! ;)

This was a sightreading of an original arrangement from one of the fellow on the Woodwind Forum. The beginning was a train wreck, but the sub on lead became the band lead after that impromptu solo. ;}

Pedant's hat on and not wishing to cross swords with Griff, especially in his current occupation, his statement that it is a trumpet, may not be totally true. The two items that distinguish trumpets from cornets and flügelhorns is whether the lead pipe enters the first or third valve and where the flare leading to the bell starts. As such, Keith could be a Trumnet, a Corpet, a Flünet, a Trühorn or any of a number of descriptions.

Apologies for being serious.
