This is a traditional blowing horn made from a cow horn. It is played like a trumpet, ie by buzzing the lips. Instruments like this have been in use for thousands of years. It makes a great gift for a reenactor, medieval musician or a fan of Lord of the Rings!

This horn is small-medium sized, 16 inches long, and sounds a note around Eb. By placing your hand in the end of the horn the note can be tuned down to an C.

This horn is unpolished and in its natural state, so as with all natural products there are flaws and imperfections, with horns this includes crusty bits, delaminations, dents, scratches, small holes etc. We have gone over it with the edge of a knife to remove any loose flaky bits and we have of course washed it, however it still has the natural patina and character it built up over the life of the cow. None of this affects the tone or robustness of the horn. Where a delamination or hole is near the mouthpiece it has been filled with natural beeswax.

This horn is the one at the top of the picture which shows several horns.

It will be sent out to you via insured post. Apologies for the high cost of shipping outside the UK, this is because the size of the item and its shape incurs additional charges.
