I hope the voters know that this is neither a flute or a trumpet, but some of each....

As soon as I saw the challenge, I wanted to create a tromboon (trombone with bassoon) but to no avail. If you have never heard of or listened to P.D.Q. Bach, the brain child of the brilliant Peter Schickele, you are really missing out. Classic stuff.

This was the next best I could do with the instruments we have lying around the house.
-flute mouthpiece...check
-student trumpet...check
-tux jacket, shirt, and bow tie...check
The most difficult part was trying to hold the flute mouthpiece in place while trying to make my face look even remotely decent while trying to actually play a note on the mouthpiece....


Thanks for the votes and comments. It was a bit overt, but I am glad you all seemed to like it.
