    Does anyone know how to write the noise an elephant makes?

    eg dogs goes 'woof', cats go 'miaow' pigs go 'oink' etc! :biggrin:

    But what about an elephant?
     
  2. An elephant "trumpets" but I have no idea how you would write the sound... PARP! maybe

  4. Glad to help :)

    "baraag" ?? what kind of sound is that? I've heard many elephants make noises (zoos, safari parks, not for real) and none of them ever said "baraag"

    Maybe you saw an Indian elephant? African elephants are fluent in Baraag.

    If you hold a piece of paper over the end of your flugel/trumpet/cornet bell, flutter tongue really loudly through your instrument at the same time it makes a great elephant sound, or what I think an elephant sounds like.
    You can also blow through your instrument, have all three valves halfway down and it sounds a bit like a humpback whale.
    :woo
