Nice and easy to listen to. hearing this and seeing the picture made a question pop into my mind.....
How to you tune a traditional air instrument like this to modern 'A440' tuning. Can they bore the holes bigger or smaller to fine tune it? or is it not really in tune and my mind is doing the work?

Tune
The maker tells me that he doesn't tune these instrument to anything but themselves. The interior of the horn determines the fundamental. The holes are drilled to obtain a certain scale. This instrument is a good quarter tone below E pentatonic, so I tuned down the drone.

evokes the ancients. calls the spirits beyond all borders to come and tell their tales in the flickering firelight. the 21st century EMP-didge-drone seems to fit right in with your organic milky-smooth horn-playing. your choice of ending note gave me a satisfied smile.

Cow horn
quite cool

this actually brought back a childhood memory that i had forgotten. my dad had a cow horn. all he could do was sputter. so what is great is to hear how a cow horn can actually be played

This sounds awesome, Vic...
You got a really nice, full tone from the cow horn, with a sense of air and space...really fills up the room....and I think the drone tone helps to make that sound big and full....
