    An Instrument for Garritan AND Snorlax

    Forumites...

    Here is the perfect instrument...with a side benefit.

    Here is the LOO-PHONIUM, a combination harp and euphonium. Gary has been wanting to play harp-euphonium duets, and here is the ideal instrument for such duetting.

    Gary would, however, occasionally have to get out of the way, and I better remove my embouchure ENTIRELY from the mouthpiece before inhaling deeply.

    Gary could also play his part in harp mode (seat up) or in zither mode (seat down).

    My jazzy rock band is called "Stink Horn" (named after a type of mushroom we found in our back yard http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stinkhorn).

    This "instrument" looks like another kind of "stink horn." It would make a good album cover for us! (Assuming we ever release an album.)
    Best Regards,
    Ernie

    And here I always thought that was a P-euphonium, also known as a P-U-phonium....

    Correct. Unintended key change would result.

    See earlier admonition:
