I'm Matt, a mathematician and recently qualified oil baron (petroleum engineer). 27 year old Englishman living in Scotland. If it's gaming, metal, folk or nerd related, odds are I'm a fan.

Skype etc, just ask.

Dictionary what are you saying??

NOPE

That is the most inaccurate drawing I’ve ever seen… I can’t even fathom how you’d comfortably play with the piston valves like that…
EDIT: evidently that’s how the piston-valve horns do look… I still can’t fathom how you play it… 
Also, that’s not a mellophone, dictionary.  Webster, get your shit together.

wait isn’t that a french horn?

Actually, that IS a mellophone. This is a traditional mellophone, which is basically the same as a French Horn, but with piston valves.
The modern (or marching) mellophone looks like this:


WHELP.

Guest starring my favourite word: mellifluous.
