Horns Made from Tree Trunks Give Odd Musical Tones
Horns hollowed out of tree trunks are used by-native musicians in the Tyrol region of Austria. The novel instruments, said to imitate the tone of a cello, are fitted with stops so that they can play all the notes of the scale. Tree bark is left on the horns in the belief that it has a softening effect on the tones of the instruments.
