Note: gemshorns are musical instruments that are made from natural horn. Accordingly, each instrument is a unique piece. Cows create their horns recognizing no EU standard. Thus, the instruments always have different colorations. Since horn is a natural material, it should not become too dry. Left in direct sunlight or on a heater it can easily crack. Conversely, made too moist by buzzing the lips into it like a brass player can cause it to swell. However, anyone who plays his Gemshorn normally and cares properly for it, can likely enjoy it for a lifetime.
