It’s still a trumpet! Albiet, a strange looking one.
This piece does not transcend it’s original form which is…… a simple trumpet.
@elliot burns – While that may well be one’s first impression, it is strongly recommended that one does not attempt to utilize the Gideon as a musical instrument.
hmm, maybe its because i played trumpet for so long, but this looks just like a cornet (this is definitely not a trumpet) with the lead-pipe soldered to the horn and some weird doodads attached. I’m not seeing a ray gun, just a malformed Victor cornet.
@jj – The fact that you see nothing more than an (as yet unidentified) musical instrument is entirely understandable. To truly “see” the raygun, one must see the Gideon in action.
Shoot the non-believers!
The simplest way to make a believer from a non-believer is to stand on the truth and wait.
I think the retention of the bell is the part that throws me (and likely others) off, because it’s the most recognizable part of all horns, and proportionally it overpowers the barrels of the Gideon. I can understand why you kept it though, because the etching on it is exquisite and would be hard to toss out. Now, if you could reverse it and use the bell as a gun-stock, I’d totally buy into that.
That said, the valves look great as a “ray-gun” and the way you integrated the springs and piping is great. Nice work!
We certainly appreciate your qualified endorsement and we assure you that each element is exactly where it needs to be to ensure safe and effective operation.
