  • Whoa!

  • Whoa!

  • Sad days.

  • We got roasted.

  • I know.

  • The roaster becomes the roasted.

  • How the tables have turned.

  • We recently posted a video,

  • well, it was just a little skit...

  • ...about violins and recorders.

  • You know, light-hearted...

  • ...just a bit of fun, didn't mean too much about it.

  • But oh man,

  • we got destroyed.

  • The recorder gang came out.

  • In particular,

  • a lot of recorder people came out,

  • and posted some video reactions to our video,

  • so I thought we would watch some of those today.

  • So the first one is

  • "Professional recorder player reacts to TwoSet Violin".

  • - Feels so weird to be the one being reacted to. - I know.

  • - 'Cause we're always reacting to others. - It's like, "Finally we're being reacted to, hey guys!"

  • I will say,

  • the viola gang, you guys take it very well.

  • Historically, they've taken it quite well.

  • Like, they...

  • The fact that you guys are still here...

  • Yeah.

  • I'm...

  • - ...props to you guys. - Yeah.

  • - I'm impressed. - Yeah.

  • Viola gang.

  • Yeah, all the viola players are like,

  • "Guys, recorder players, just chill."

  • - Who knows, let's see what they have to say. - Let's see, yeah.

  • Hello everybody,

  • I'm Sarah, and I'm a recorder player.

  • Damn, she just flexed hard right here.

  • Dude that was like 12...

  • Bam! *chuckles*

  • No dude, it costs hundred dollars

  • I'm just joking, agh! Just joking!

  • My mentions on Facebook,

  • Instagram,

  • Twitter,

  • YouTube, were full of a certain video,

  • that had just been released by TwoSet Violin.

  • And, a lot of people were asking me to react on this.

  • Now I don't want this video to be shade,

  • or hate on TwoSet Violin at all.

  • Wait, why am I getting anxious?

  • Yeah, like...

  • I don't mean this to be shade...

  • I think it's so good,

  • that they bring classical music to a wider audience,

  • and in general, I like their videos.

  • So...

  • Oh, thank you.

  • Appreciate it.

  • In general...

  • - In general, except for this video. - Except for this one.

  • And the way she does this...

  • Yeah, it's like,

  • "Get ready."

  • I'm very curious what this video is about

  • that has apparently got the recorder world...

  • ...very upset.

  • There's a world?

  • I'm just joking.

  • Wait, no, no, no...

  • Let's just make a real clear disclaimer straight up.

  • Our intention was just to have a little bit of fun.

  • Yeah.

  • Of course,

  • it didn't even occur to us the idea that we might...

  • ...make recorder players feel like we think

  • - they're not a proper instrument. - Yeah.

  • Because we just never thought

  • - they weren't a proper instrument. - Yeah.

  • Just...

  • - Do make it clear, we have to make things clear. - Yes.

  • Disclaimer.

  • Yes.

  • But we just like making fun of everyone,

  • - including ourselves. - Yeah.

  • Violas.

  • Thanks guys.

  • I love her face.

  • She's just like, "Ohhh..."

  • Dude, you didn't even get to the next octave yet.

  • - Yeah. - It already started.

  • Okay. So they're comparing the violin to the recorder,

  • this would be amazing,

  • if on both instruments, you had a professional player.

  • What a missed opportunity.

  • Recorders are often depicted as having two octaves...

  • I just remembered that,

  • I did once play with a professional recorder player,

  • - Yeah. - in a concert, in Sydney.

  • I was really impressed.

  • I was like, "Wow recorder, like, concerto."

  • And the projection was pretty on point,

  • - in a classical, you know, recital hall. - Mmm.

  • Yeah.

  • But you can go higher...

  • ...and lower.

  • Um...

  • - Cool. - I guess there's a good range

  • for every instrument, right?

  • I couldn't stop,

  • couldn't stop.

  • I'd say two octaves and a sixth or a seventh,

  • but wait.

  • Whoa!

  • Dude, can I say that it just looks like a Minecraft?

  • As a recorder player,

  • you are expected to be able to play

  • the entire family of instruments.

  • It looks like an Ikea installation.

  • - *snickers* - I'm sorry...

  • But recorders...

  • ...players can play a lot of instruments.

  • This is a contrabass but you can get recorders,

  • even an octave and a half lower than this.

  • This is the tiny garklein,

  • it's a bit like...

  • Imagine every professional violinist having to also play

  • violin, cello, and double bass.

  • Poor violas.

  • - So they get eacheven the recorder's like, - Even the recorder gang is forgetting their existence.

  • "Violas." Violists are like,

  • "Yeah, okay, here we go, yeah."

  • I'll be honest. That's pretty funny.

  • - It was funny, I'm playing Darude "Sandstorm". - Even she's laughing.

  • I actually really like his tonguing.

  • Talent within!

  • Bang!!!

  • This is why music brings people together,

  • now we're best friends.

  • She like my tonguing,

  • I like her contrabass.

  • Of course, between string and wind instruments,

  • not every effect is gonna translate, um,

  • literally.

  • Hear, hear.

  • Hear, hear.

  • (both) Thank you.

  • A tremolo is a trembling of the note,

  • caused by rapidly repeating it.

  • You could do it with double tonguing.

  • Or even flutter tonguing.

  • Dude, what am I...

  • What am I doing?

  • - Look at her reaction, she's like, "Wow!!!" - I know.

  • The emotion.

  • Yeah, there's so much emotion in there.

  • Thank you. Thank you.

  • What I see them doing here is

  • trying to do vibrato with your fingers.

  • You may laugh, but we have that too.

  • - I guess it's... - I didn't know that.

  • Wave, sound waves...I don't know.

  • Damn, got us back there.

  • You're notthey're not even trying...!

  • She stated the obvious.

  • - We're not even trying. - Yeah, we're not trying...we weren't trying.

  • We can make chords in three different ways.

  • Multiphonics.

  • Yeah, I'm not sure that counts as a chord.

  • But I get your point.

  • Singing whilst playing.

  • - That's cool! - That's...that's...that's cool.

  • - Yeah, okay. - I like...

  • I've seen that one, yeah,

  • that's...that's the OG.

  • - Yeah! - That's...that's good.

  • Um...obviously there is more to the video, but,

  • we don't want this video to get too long,

  • - and we did want to react to one more video. - Mm-hmm.

  • That was made by Lucie.

  • She was the OG recorder player

  • - that we reacted to back in the day. - Yes.

  • And she also made a reaction.

  • Is that true?

  • Dude!!!!

  • That's so awesome!

  • That's funny, that's funny.

  • - Well, welcome Lucie! Yeah! - I respect that!

  • - I feel honoured, to be your first video. - Yeah.

  • One tip for Eddy,

  • uh, use the half thumb,

  • to reach the notes in the second and the third register.

  • One tip. That's it.

  • Use your half thumb, Eddy.

  • You listening?

  • Yes, sensei, please teach me!

  • Go!

  • Wait, did she say third register?

  • Yeah.

  • Whoa...!!!

  • - No need to flex that hard! - It's like...

  • Is it because it's a 10 dollar instrument?

  • - Yeah. - Or am I just s***?

  • - I'm all for this flex. - Yeah.

  • Please, keep flexing on us.

  • Isn't that a flute piece?

  • - Hey, the violas play some violin pieces. - Ohh, that's so good!

  • - Dude, it was so smooth... - That was...that was so smooth.

  • That was so...

  • - ...that you couldn't hear like— - I couldn't hear the stop.

  • ...yeah.

  • - Oh, I wanna try that! - Dude that's some technique!

  • How do you do that?

  • Dude, it sounds like UFO.

  • Practice.

  • Did you practice today?

  • Dude, that's some multitasking.

  • Does she have like, 400 IQ?

  • 'Cause she looks so like...

  • Relaxed.

  • She's not even trying, she's just like, "Yeah."

  • Hey guys, welcome to my very first YouTube video.

  • I can't do it!

  • - Dude... - Ah yeah...

  • - Yeah I get it now, flexing... - Yeah...flex....

  • Oh dude, chill, chill

  • Whoa!!!

  • - Dude, she just put like 10 trillion... - I know.

  • Dude, holy crap.

  • Oh my god.

  • Well, there you go.

  • It's a legitimate professional career.

  • - Dude, what a burn. - Yeah...

  • She just destroyed us.

  • - She has a VEVO, and she made... - That was the one we reacted to.

  • She made a private YouTube just to roast...

  • "The agency won't let me do this,

  • but I'm just gonna do it anyway."
