You can tune an oboe?

I'm a trumpet player, too. Playing loud is always more fun.

Up until recently I played with a symphony where one would often hear from the conductor, "The trumpets are too loud!"

To which we'd reply, "There's no such thing!"

Oh man...Victor beat me to saying the very first thing that came to my mind.

A fellow brass player (trombone), I used to love to terrorise the saxes sitting in front of our section.

Most embarassing volume related incident was in high school, the year our music program recorded an album. It was recorded live in our auditorium and the recording engineers hung a mic right over my horn. The concert band selections sounded like I was trying to play a feature solo all through every piece. At least I knew how to tune, thank gawd. Yeesh.
