    What bothers me is that the O.P. failed to tell us how it played. Was it good or bad?

    I think the reference in the video clip to ducks landing on the roof is a clue.ROFL

    Bingo CBK ... it is almost unplayable ... I was nervous about putting a decent mp in it being it wasn't a real receiver.... so I found a pretty beat up one lying around and tried working it ... you can bend just about any note, and I use the term note loosely, almost 3-4 half steps. I am not sure if the tone is more Canadian Duck or one of the local variety.
    I think the bell is from a Bach Prelude or something like that form the early nineties.
    I am pretty sure the original mp is stuck in a reciever somewhere with a cork screwed leadpipe.

    tuning slide is definitely Holton. I compared it to an older Holton cornet I had in the parts bin..
