Hummingbird....

.

because you guys (and deb) know how I love conical horns... 



psyche!

I would never do that to you guys... 

in honor of Jean-Michel Le Cleac'h:


we finally figured out how to make solid wood horns that are stiff and yet are thin enough to not crack over a century... I am excited... meet elm and walnut....


it feels good to have both the 16a and Sierra horn debacles behind me... nothing like a hard lesson to help you see the light.... woo hoo!!!

peace,
me

  1. Fantastic! Congratulations.
    A swedish carpenter told me that
    softer wood floors, like pine and spruce,
    feel warmer. Who knows worth horns?

  4. stunningly beautiful!! I sure hope they don't crack over time with wood movement...

    It's hard to make out exactly but it looks like some fairly thick solid wood.

  6. Those are simply stunning! I always thought some generalization of the simple pedal horn would be possible in curved form. These Tractrix?

  9. Those horns are gorgeous. Have you had them in a system and compared their sound qualities to Martin's Perth surf shop horns?
