Horn Bugle - Small

Be the first to review this product

This handmade Oxhorn blowing horn has been crafted in the time-honoured style that dates back to Viking days. 

Made from a single bullhorn our Viking horns do not require reeds. The mouthpiece is prepared by cutting off the tip of the horn and making two drill cuts, to create the rim and cup design similar to that of brass instruments. The horn is then given a light sanding and polish to bring out its natural beauty whilst retaining that rustic appearance. A leather hanging strap is added to complete the look.

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. 

The bugle, a modern-day descendant of the blowing horn, is used to call out orders in military camps or even scout camps, whilst as a hunting horn, it is used to flush out game.

Whatever your designs for this large bugle we are sure you will enjoy the deep resonant sound produced by these horns.

Sound Your Horn For Battle!

To play:

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.
