Default Segmented horns

Just wondering how many have attempted segmented horn builds as I am just getting started on mid and highs

My horns are growing looking for advice with things to avoid as I don't see many examples of segmented horns anywhere

Looks great. I have no experience with segmented horns, but have built many drums with segmented shells. The sweet spot for thickness is about 3/8", light but still quite strong. I've used lots of different woods, cherry is my favorite. African and Honduran Mahogany also very nice tone woods.

Yes conical horns in maple for the mids and highs and a 15" jubilee for the lows if all goes well on the lathe as these will be the largest turnings i will have attempted on my lathe.

Just remember the larger you go, the slower the RPM. It will work out very well if you keep up the good work.

WOW

I'm 3hrs north of you. (Cold Lake)

Are you taking order? I would be interested in a ~200hz round tractrix to cover 300hz-1500. (probably a BC 6PE13 or maybe a PRV 5MR450.)
