The horns are made of brass
piping and parts used for radiators, toilets and other
household systems that require metal that is water resistant.
The fittings, mouthpieces and the occasional bell are
salvaged from a horn repair shop. The general sound
of the horns invites a combination of didgeridoo and
bugle styles of play and the tone holes extend pitch
range and give the overall spirit of the instruments
an Indian or Middle Eastern quality.
Horn players around
New York and San Francisco have played them and find
them to be amusing visually at first and then engaging
when they realize that they have been designed as musical
instruments and with the same care. They are available
commercially but due to the variety of parts Tommy DOG
comes in contact with, prices are determined on a project
by project basis.
