Cowhorn

I sell my cowhorn according to their length. The shortest are cheapest, but most difficult to play. The long ones are more expensive, but more easy to play.

cowhorn "very small"  300 SEK
cowhorn up to 25 cm   400 SEK
cowhorn up to 35 cm   600 SEK
cowhorn up to 50 cm   800 SEK
cowhorn over 50 cm      1000 SEK
Goathorn are harder to get and consequently more expensive prices. Phone or mail me!

The cowhorn is one of the oldest instruments in the history of music. Maybe because the raw material was so easily accessible. The cowhorn has a very strong sound which can be heard from far far away. You could say it was the cell phone of the past.
Horn (=nails) is a natural material which stays intact for a very long time. Some horns have been found which have been dated to the 10th century, using pollen analysis. They still look exactly like today's horns.

One of the longer cohorns I have made. It is about 80 cm long. The tip is saved, with an end plug, so the horn is useful for drinking if you are thirsty.

A small bunch of horns set for documentation. When I have been working with cowhorn making for about 40 years, there are countless horns passing through my workshop. I make horns from about 20 cm to about 80 cm. You can get horns in "normal" tuned keyes, but most do are in "cow-minor"

Cowhorn has ancient traditions as a broadcaster in the long run, which can be considered very early Nokia phones. This one I was authorized to use in medieval fairs for many years. Good show for the audience. The world's longest phone, tailored for my left leg
