HWBUGS - Large blowing horn, rough and rustic (i.e. unpolished)

Our horn bugles ( or blowing horns ) are hand made in England from a single piece of cow horn. The mouth piece does not contain a reed and so is blown with pursed lips like a trumpet, producing a deep resonant sound.

Blowing horns were used in Viking and medieval times as a means of communication, to keep in contact with your friends (e.g. during hunting) or to warn people of your approach (Blowing your horn was a way of showing that you were not engaged in any criminal activity!)

These are natural products, so shape, size and colour will vary.

Note: Small blowing horns must be blown very hard and produce a high-pitched sound, large blowing horns are blown very loosely and produce a deep sound. The medium blowing horns are easiest to blow and produce the best sound.
