Wonderful natural sailing trophy gifts from the sea and it's history

Seafarers, whether whalers, explorers or traders would encounter shell horns being used in all of the southern waters  of the world from China to southeast Asia to South America and the Caribbean. They would naturally see their usefulness and carry them with them back to England or Spain or even Scandinavia wherever they were from. Their use in recorded seafaring history goes back a very long way even in places such as Europe, Russia and Japan ! They were used extensively by the British Navy for hundreds of years And now today as sailing trophies, wedding horns or special award trophy gifts !

~These conch shells are very much part of the soul of the islands and seafaring history ~

Subject: Re: Large Conch Shell horn in 'E' (high)
 
Dear Robert,
    My horn is beautiful.  It arrived Wednesday, in time to begin toughening up my poor lip.  It is just a bit low, but if I make sure not to block the opening with my hand at all, it is just high enough to qualify as a "folk instrument 'E' ".   It's so much easier to play (with the brass  mouthpiece) than my other conch, and has a big round sound.  My challenge will be to play it softly when required, and to have the endurance needed on it. (It plays almost continuously for several minutes). 
     I don't actually play it with the orchestra until Wednesday, but I heard a recording of the piece today (Revueltas "Night of the Maya").  It's wild, loud, and sounds like a Human Sacrifice Convention.  The horn on my recording is actually playing a 'C', and sounds rather wimpy and erratic. I hope I can do better.
Thanks so much for your prompt service and excellent product.

~ Not Endangered Species ~

All of our shells are fished legally within season and none of them are endangered species. They have all entered this country with the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife approval. None have come from any countries where over fishing is occurring. They are taken first as a food source like all fish and then the shell is used as well. In years past these beautiful shells were discarded !
