>>I always thought it was so jazzers could trade fours with themselves!?!
Hey, Mike, that's not only very funny and witty, but...
reminiscent of a Bobby Shew (trumpet player) invention...
The "Shew Horn" is a double belled flugel horn which Shew does use to trade fours* with himself (on the album Trumpets No End). He had a harmon mute in one bell, with the other one open.... fantastic !!
* and individual phrases/notes, almost emulating a plunger open/closed effect.
'Nuff trumpet talk, normal transmission will now be resumed.
