"Sorry Dr.Mark, I'm party to a hijack here. As per my previous none of my horns exhibited that behaviour."
Actually it's kinda neat to see what new ideas have come from my late night adventures with lead pipe playing. Who knows what it can lead to? That's in part why (for me) stuff like this is so interesting. Who would have figured that Benoit Mandelbrat would have come up with fractal geometry and self similarity by working on computers at IBM. It's easy to imagine that he would have come up with some sort of hardware or software but a new way to approach geometry? Just goes to show that thinking about one idea can sometimes be the light switch or a springboard for another idea.
tj, you may have already answered this but when you tuned your horns with the new method, did the tuning slides end up where they normally would be?
