The Frunting Horn

The Frunting Horn has finally arrived. What a long wait! Just about two years, I reckon. Anyway, it’s lovely. Nice and light, quite horn-like in its sound but not in its articulation, which is smoother and more vocal thanks to piston, rather than rotary valves.


Hey, nice slippers, man!


Actually if feels more like a low cornet than a horn. Interestingly, the top C (concert F) only works when you play it loud. When quiet the note isn’t really there. Bummer. However, I might be able to fix that by putting a false hand or something like that in the bell.

It might look stupid but it may be worth it.

Hell, what am I saying? It will look stupid! I’d better not go too high on it.


Shiny looking, dull sounding....
