    I guess it could be for leadpipe buzzing too

    The bracing seems to go to the lead pipe he isn't using... I didn't watch all the way through... is there another camera angle close up that shows how the other pipe is attached?
    Maybe it's soldered right to the un-used one? I just wonder about the physics of the thing.
    Of course it does'nt really matter - he sounds great! -just wondering...
    :-?

    The unused pipe looks longer than the one he's blowing through. Wonder if it's for playing in A?

    Or it could be a jerry-rigged last minute fix :-)

    Loved the half-valved glissando at the start. Made it worth rewatching to try and see the setup he's using.

    I have seen this years ago in Germany for testing leadpipes. There was a small piece that is inserted into the original receiver to hold in place. Some players liked the leadpipe "loose" and used it this way all the time. In this case the soldered leadpipe looks long enough to pitch the trumpet in A.

    There seem to be a few posts on the site that shall not be named regarding this. According to some, tjcombo is right. The one leadpipe is slightly longer to facilitate tuning the horn to A.

    When I first saw it I wondered if it's so he can swap a standard tuning slide with a reverse one on the fly. I can't get a good enough look at the horn to see, but this would also account for one being slightly longer.
