DIY Shofar, pt.1

So, I decided I wanted a shofar….  but have you priced the pretty/good ones?  Yep, me too.  (See The Shofar Man for some real beauties… )

After a little research and some elbow grease…

I started with a 38″ South African Kudu horn from this ebay store.  I think I paid about $39 for it.  Looked pretty rough…  like the one pictured below, though no major dings.

Wholesale horns, kudu and other types are available here.



It came with the cartilage already removed.

I will post detailed instructions of how I did this project in the next few days.  If you want to take this challenge, go ahead and find a nice kudu horn and check back in for details.  No major tools required, though a small belt and/or drum sander as well as a hand drill will be very helpful.

Now, I have to practice getting consistent notes and sounds.  Currently, I know it has about five nice notes, but blowing them consistently is going to take some practice!!  Ready for the next new moon!
