In 2012, one of my local favorites, with tuba, attended HONKFEST in Austin. I was not in attendance, sadly. But I have seen them live and they're a spectacle to behold. Probably one vid would lead to another. I give you

TITANIUM SPORKESTRA!







You could embiggen, but you should crank it.

If I had to listen to almost nine minutes of that (the War Pigs cover) I would attempt suicide.

I'm afraid to try the other vids now. I couldn't make it 60 seconds. Not even.

I thank you for the exposure and the opportunity for new music, though.

That must have been a fun time, that's where the picture in post#5 was taken.

Hey Limey, you could add a bagpipe to your new band, real cheap.

They shoulda been sued. In fact, I bet they were.

At around 1:50 they are doing some great Sousaphone flips. Bigger is better of course.

Kirk explains how the valves work on brass instruments.

Quote:
Any other fellow computer nerds out there subconsciously bugged that a trombone slide held all the way in is "first position" and not "zeroeth position"?

Actually, for my School of Honk'ers that might be curious about the pattern valves have -- I don't know if sectionals run this by new members when they start, so apologies if everyone knows it :-D (For School of Honk, this mostly is about the trumpets and tubas, though or baritone friends we get sometimes play the same too)

Most brass instruments with valves work the same way - pressing down more valves is like moving out the slide on a trombone, the air goes through that tube, so overall the instrument is "bigger", in terms of more tubing = slower vibration = lower sound. (Of course it's more complicated than that, since you have to learn to adjust your lips to buzz at a different "partial". Or it could be simpler than that- with a bugle (or heaven forbid a Vuvuzela) and no valves- in which case you can play nothing but partials. Bugle calls like "taps" and "reveille" make their music out of that- a trumpet player can play all those songs without pressing any valves, or just keeping one down all the time)

ANYWAY, the middle, "second" valve moves you down a half step, first valve a whole step, third valve -- 1 1/2 steps. Which seems pretty weird! I think it's meant to put the more-used whole step on the stronger pointer finger, maybe? And you can combine valves to lower more steps (you might have noticed the third valve is more-or-less the same as first plus second.) Some big horns like concert tubas will have a fourth valve, which will put you down 2 whole steps, and so is about the same as pressing 1 and 3, but lets you dig even lower beneath that.
