B.E.R.P. and F.A.R.T.
Here is a quote from the great tuba player, Roger Bobo:
Once in Los Angeles when we were very unoccupied and needed a creative outlet, the back row created an evil prank. One of our trumpet players had developed a wonderful practice product called the B.E.R.P. (Buzzing Extension and Resistance Piece), which enabled brass players to buzz on the mouthpiece while it was in the horn. It works, and many of my students use it. But the combination of creativity and free time the back row led to the low brass running an ad in the international trombone magazine for a F.A.R.T. (forced air resistance tube)! Everyone found this quite humorous… apart from the producer of the B.E.R.P., who made it very clear to us that we were never to make that joke again, so that was the end of it!
