Signal horns

Signal or blowing cow horns (Winding Horns or Blast Horns).

Blowing Horn belongs to one of the oldest musical instruments. One of the oldest animal horns was dicovered in a bog in Visnum (Sweden), almsot 1500 years before present. Using  these horns will make your re-enactment and LARP battles really special.

Signal Horns - Blowing Horns

A blowing horn is a horn with a length of at least 30 cm and with its end cut off. Our blowing horns have all been stripped inside and polished on the outside. Don’t expect to be a master at blowing your own horn on the first try - and if you do manage, then congratulations! It’s important how you press your lips to the horn, which is done in a similar way to playing a reed instrument like a saxophone. Lick your lips lightly and pucker them up (Ooh, yes, just like that!) then put your upper lip into the opening of the horn. Take a good, deep breath and begin to smoothly exhale into the horn. Your lips will vibrate in the same way as when you “blow a raspberry” (make a rude noise). However, don’t press too hard - easy does it. The horns produce various tones - each one is different. In order to find the right position for playing yours, you can try moving the horn around a little, and try slightly different positions with your lips within the mouthpiece.

Warning: do not blow on your horn out in the countryside, especially when it is dark or in a foggy conditions. Some of your neighbours might take fright; especially those who have seen the film The 13th Warrior...Look out everyone, the Wendols are coming!
