    In fact... It is not a growl... it is a GROP. You heard it hear first on TM.

    I thought you'd do a low pitched hum (as low as you can with still playing the trumpet well) and play reasonably high.
    When I try this it sounds similar.

    don't you mean the whisper key?

    Sorry Gman you got there first.

    It sounds to me like distortion on the mike with an over blown (not being critical here) horn.

    I think it is the upper lip vibrating on another frquence than the lower lip? I can't do it but i heard about it.

    To me, it sound likes preamp for the microphone ( possibly the microphone itself) was distorting. The joys of tube preamps - and powerful players!!!!

    my favorite acronym so far is ((GROP ---Girls' Rites of Passage (educational program)), it's there under acronyms, grop2.org

    of course in Urban slang one will find the following definition ---

    grop --- n. a morsel of cannabis suitable for gifting, borrowing, or stealing; a small amount of cannabis one might "loan" a friend if they're dry; enough ganj to "get you by"; connotation is positive and in the spirit of camaraderie or kinship. v. the act of receiving, giving, or obtaining the grop (as in "Yeah I'll grop you, Bro.")v. -ped the act of receiving, giving, or obtaining the grop, (can also denote past tense as in "I've been gropped.")


    but HEY, who am I to say this acronym already has been taken??? ROFL ROFL ROFL

    This is exactly "the" GROP I could not imagine that it was the cause of Gary's Ray of Power!
