How to get a better sound from your air horns?


Recommended Posts

I know mine used to sound "whimpy" years ago, til I figured out that the trumpet had come loose and it was leaking more air then blowing through the trumpet. I tightened it up and WOW.....it's pretty loud. I don't have the little twin set up, but a single long horn. Maybe that's the difference? I have another long one to put on, but missing the front support bracket.

Few years back our ATHS chapter used to be in a local parade. I'd get the "blow your horn" request and I'd let it rip(for 5 seconds or so--til it showed I was loosing too much air) and i'd either get a "YEAH!" or you'd see people holding their ears LMAO!!!!!

I think I saw a 'flick' with you in it at the last stag party I attended!

Quite possible. I attend as many as humanly possible. Everybody wants me you know......
