Default diy horn in paper for singing...

hello everybody,

i got probably the strangest question on this board.

i need to sing at a wedding, but it is gonna take place in a forest.
i will not carry any speaker or amp with me. but i need to sing loud.

so i wonder if it would make sense if i make myself a horn. something like you see on old turntables.

i thought o buying one, something like they use on rowing competitions (the extra man that screams when to row).

but maybe i can build it myself from strong paper.

so my questions
1)has anybody got a better idea for this ?
2)does anyone has a design for it ?

thanks guys

This is really a strange question. A conical horn should do just fine. It will sound a bit coloured anyway and a conical horn carries far away. Maybe you can modify one of the cones that children get when they enter school.

yeah horn's color the sound, there is a dropoff. maybe i can design it that way that it doesn't does that in my vocal range. but i guess that is gonna be one big horn if it may not cutt of just up to 80-90hz.

i'm looking into it.
