    I'm sure there was a thread on this a while back, but that's how I would say it, or 'thumper'

    Tempo, surely?
    And the plural would be Tempi.
    What's the collective noun for a group of Tempi?
    A tube?
    A noise?
    A harmony?

    to set your minds at rest - officially, it's "thumper" with a hard "th" ;)

    Sorry Keppler, I know you're in a position to know, but I'm still with Kirsty - tee-em-pee-er. (although actually, I can't think of any circumstances at all in which I would use this to describe myself. I don't think it would improve my CV!!)

    tee-em-pee-er would look much better on a CV than putting "part time thumper" :D

    That's ok Keppler, just don't *thump* me.. but I'll still think as tee-em-pee as it's in my head that way now :?

    I don't get why tMPer can be said as thumper :?
    I get the th from The and the mp from mouthpiece, but why thumper?

    I say that I have been 'tumping'

    But I label you lovely people as 'tee-emm-pee-eers' or 'mouthpiece folk' which is altogether less controversial
