Cucumber trumpets have been the cornerstone of the vegetable orchestra community since its inception. We have decided to take this phenomenon and bring it to you, the people, to spread that “fresh produce” sound. This project is aimed at a group of pals who need to take their band to the next level, to finally be given the shot that they need, and only have $2.00 between them. My parents once said “Brass is a young man’s game.” and I have taken that to heart ever since, and if these instructions are followed exactly, you will understand the importance of the motto as well.
