No, not this pit, The Pit Ensemble in Marching Band. I'm stuck in it for the semester because the tuba my school assigned me this year had some faulty valves. But anyways, the pit ensemble is probably the worse thing ever. Has anyone else been stuck in the pit?

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

My friend was in a pit once. He played saxophone. I'm not sure if he liked it, I know they practiced a lot though.

(Progressive Metal is) like playing Nirvana, but faster, with little or no powerchords, cleanly, with more technique, and complex time signatures.

I was in a pit once at a Down concert.

Go see U2, then you can say you contributed money to Bono's giant Irish tower built out of the blood, tears, and the hopes of African children.

Heh...We should make a Pit Ensemble.

Like a Choir with everyone who visits the pit.

Choir Music + Pit Monkeys = Greatness.
Flap it and enjoy yourself...

A most ingenious idea, my friend.
Only, it would be hard, because unless we're all uploading audio files, no one would be able to hear it.

I played in the ensemble once, when one of the vibraphonists was gone. It was pretty bad. I hated it.

my condolences.
that's where they put the uncoordinated kids who can't walk and chew gum at the same time.
unless you play marimba, vibraphone, or something similar,
being assigned to the pit is a smack in the face.
