Small Southern Banded Horn
« on: June 18, 2019, 09:48:58 PM »
I am working on southern banded horns these days.   I just finished this one which I don't think is too bad.  It is the one where I got the tip stuck.   It comes off now.  It is about 13 1/2" around the outside curve staple to stopper.   The base plug is a little under 2 1/4" in diameter.   The horn has a screw-tip with a female thread (male thread on the horn).   Let me know what you think.   If I still have it at the end on next month,  I may put it in for judging at Dixon's and see what the judges say about it.   It may be a little too heavy, but you can't tell that from pictures.

good looking horn, fit and finish are very attractive. Strictly my personal observation is that the tip, although very well done, is a out of scale with the rest of the horn.

Thanks for the feedback.  Is it too long, too thick, or both?  I tried to thin it down more than I usually do, but I guess it could have been thinner.   I am afraid of the tip cracking, so I leave them a bit heavier than perhaps I should.
