In the middle ages, horns were worn over the shoulder. They were made of wood, boiled leather, ivory, horn and metal. This wind instrument could play only a very limited number of notes. What distinguished this horn from the hunting horn and the ivory horn was that the first could modulate the airs with more or less force, while the ivory horn and the hunting horn could render only a small number of notes with full blowing force. As of the 14th century, hunters sounded a fixed number airs. The horn varied in length from 50 to 35 centimetres. It was curved and had a hemispherical mouthpiece of metal.
