I believe the clip is a very tight flutter tongue and a harmon mute with the stem in--really old school. Check out Clyde McCoy's "Sugar Blues" on Your Tube. By the way, Growling should be done without interjecting any tone into the sound, therefore no humming. Producing a polyphonic tone and doing so with growling is a whole different skill--at least that's the way I understand it and do it.

If you hum in to the horn, unless you are screaming, the audience won't hear the hum.

I can't yet manipulate the pitch at will, but yes, singing different notes will create different distortions. Tritones or out of tune notes may create interesting sounds.
Play loud! I've been told that my piano isn't exactly my forte......
No pressure, but don't use pressure.
There are two accepted ways to produce a growl sound on the horn. One is to flutter tongue. The more vigorious the flutter tongue the better the growl. The other is to hum while you play. The farther the pitch of the hum is from the played note and the louder it is the better the growl. I use both ways depending on the effect I want. To get really nasty use both at the same time.
On the video of Bubber it sounds more like a plunger mute with a Pixie straight mute. This was his favorite set up. Doesn't sound like a harmon.
