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.
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!
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.
