    Impressive. I had not thought that you could get false tones on a trombone (which is basically a cylindrical instrument).

    I have not figured out a good use for this skill ...
    The use, particularly on Eb tuba, is that you can use a 3-valve instrument to cover what is usually thought of as a 4-valve range. A common attitude towards 3-valve tubas is "Well, there are notes you just can't play with them." Not so.
