Horns

Horns of all sorts were a common instrument in medieval times, going as far back as the Roman Empire. They were used in various capacities, both for entertainment and for military use. At Dark Knight Armoury, we carry a variety of medieval horns, ranging from more modern bugles to classic trumpets that hail back to the days of the medieval king and the Roman general. In a military application, horns were used to signal troop movements and convey orders - one blast for this, two blasts for that, and so on and so forth. They were also a common feature in royal courts, where a horn blast or fanfare was used to announce the arrival of an important party, or to note the importance of a certain event. Horns even served to help silence crowds in such events and they still do at some events, even to this day. Horns remained in military service for quite some time, even up until modern days. As entertainment, they are no less appealing, as the tone of a horn is loud, clear, and crisp, creating a blaring note that gets the attention, while also featuring enough variation to create a variety of different melodies. This section at Dark Knight Armoury contains both herald trumpets and Roman horns, based on historical designs, as well as more modern military bugles, which would have seen use in more modern militaries, as late as the Civil War and the American Indian Wars. Most are fully functional, and those that are not state as such in their individual description. Whether you are looking to sound the charge, wake up your troops, play a fanfare, or just toot your horn for fun, you can bet that any of the horns found here at Dark Knight Armoury will serve you well as an instrument to play in public and in private.
