Sounding Techniques

Blowing horns or Horn bugles are handmade from a single piece of cow horn. Since the mouthpiece does not contain a reed, it is blown with pursed lips like a trumpet, producing a deep resonating sound.

Since they are made from a natural product, their size, shape, and color vary with each piece. The larger the blowing horn, the deeper sound it makes.

For the small blowing horns to make a similar high pitched sound, they must be blown very hard. The large blowing horns are blown very loosely since less effort is needed to create a huge sound.

The most preferred are the medium blowing sound since the easiest to blow and produce the best sound.
