.... have any test data on an experiemental horn consisting of a mouthpiece, a straight conical section, and a bell ... with a length equal to that of a tuba? No braces, no valves... no nothing to interfere with sound generation. I would think that braces, bends, slides, joints, etc. etc. would all have an impact on pure sound. In other words, everyone should re-read the great explanation given by Sam Gnagey. Less has got to be better. C'mon, Rick Denney, where are you when we need you?
