HUGE Ceremonial Horn - real horn trumpet. Viking horn.
This handmade blowing horn has been crafted in the time-honoured style that dates back to Viking days.
Made from a single horn. The mouthpiece is placed on the side for easy blowing and several notes are possible. A leather hanging strap can be added to complete the look for £5 extra.
Traditionally used more for signalling than for music, horns have been used as sounding cries by many ancient societies - as a means of spreading messages, summoning people to meetings or festivals or to warn people of your approach.
Please note: horn is a natural product so these horns will vary in colour and texture from photos. They will have areas of roughness, marks and scratches were the animals fought each other! All natural blemishes are what make them have character as no two are alike.
These XL horns are polished and approx. 75cm in length!
Blowing a Viking horn is a simple process of using the instrument's natural shape to create a unique booming sound and is similar to blowing air through a trumpet.
Hold the horn close to the mouthpiece with one hand and towards the centre of the instrument with your other hand to ensure stability.
Purse your lips tightly against the edges of the mouthpiece, holding your lips straight and tight and close together.
Blow strongly and consistently into the mouthpiece while pursing your lips. Your lip's vibrations will create a buzzing sound in the mouthpiece that resonates throughout the instrument.
