Quantasonic Pipes is a euphonium-tuba duo comprised of a two retired Physics teachers. Our goal is to demonstrate the beautiful standing waves created by brass instruments in the lower range. Brass instruments behave as pipes open at both ends, thus below is a little physics background governing the harmonic series of frequencies produced by open ended pipes.

A tuba is a pipe which has a harmonic series of frequencies which are quantum values, thus our name: Quantasonic Pipes.

A bugle is a valveless brass instrument. It is only capable of playing songs which employ notes within a harmonic series for the length of pipe the bugle is made of. Below is a version of "Taps" written for B flat tuba which could be played without using any of the valves. Notice that all of the notes are one of the harmonic series pictured above.
