Trumpets of Tutnakhamun
Here's a post only a trumpet player can appreciate. This video has a "deer in the headlights" moment at 4:30 where a band person breaks one of the original trumpets of Tutnakhamun in front of the King of Egypt (King Farouk) by putting a modern mouthpiece in the ancient trumpet.
