    It's the sound the woodwind player makes when they get hit with one (tilted bell helps projection!!) !!

    Is it me not being observant enough but don't see the 123 combination of valves and yet the air goes through three slides at one point? This said I like the GIF.

    The sound does not "travel" through the horn like a spitwad. The standing wave is in the whole horn at the same time and "leaks" out of the bell. We can get a similar effect by gluing a headphone speaker to a mouthpiece an using it to create the sound.

    The only thing moving from front to back of the trumpet is our "exhale" which should be balanced so that we can play long enough phrases but not suffocate.

    A trumpet sound is NOT an amplified buzz!
