Small and bad sound.

Comments:

Maybe it was the horn I received but I was much smaller than expected. Around 4 inches and length and did not produce a very good sound at all. Even my collegiate trumpet playing friends could not produce a good sound on this horn. Way too high pitched and small.

item as advertised

Comments:

I have been on Grand Canyon river trips where a large conch is used to call participants to meals; the large conch has a wonderful low tone. The shell I received is about 8" long with a brass ring mouthpiece. It's tone is more than one octave (I think) higher than that of a large conch and the tone is not as musical. If you're not a trumpet player (which I am), it takes some practice to be able to get the higher tone from the smaller shell.

Conch Shell Horn No Blow !!!!

Comments:

Conch Shell Horn was smaller than expected only 6 inches in length. I have a few other conch shell horns and they blow and sound beautiful this one sounds like a wounded moose !! Several of my friends who have conch horns also tried and no one got a decent sound out of this horn ! Guess it will be an expensive paper weight. I recommend only buying a horn you can see and try.
