Large Polished Cow Horn Bugle Horn

Sound Your Horn For Battle!

This polished Oxhorn blowing horn has been hand crafted in a time-honoured fashion that dates back to the days of the Vikings. 

Made from a single large cow horn our blowing 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 high polish to bring out it’s natural beauty.  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 from these horns.

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.
