Product Description

The Alphorn (German: Alpenhorn) is literally translated as “Horn of the Alps”. 

 

These traditional long horns were played by Swiss, Austrian, Bavarian and French Alpine herdsmen and villagers, originally sounded for intercommunication and at daily ceremonies and seasonal festivals. With the sound of the Alphorn the cows were called from the pastures and into the barn at milking time. 

 

Today, these imposing horns are mostly played as musical instruments

 

Like the didgeridoo, the Indian bamboo or wooden trumpet and the African horn, the alphorn is one of the original wooden wind instruments.

 

The Alphorn is carved or bored in wood and overwound with birch bark. Most instruments are straight, reaching 12 feet (4 metres) in length; since the mid-19th century, especially in Switzerland, the bell may be upcurved.

 

 

These impressive White Spot pipes have been inspired by the shape of traditional Alphorns of the Swiss, Austrian, Bavarian and French alpine mountains. 

 

The Alphornpipe are individually hand-turned, classified as Collector XL, and measure an impressive 34cm (13.5 inches) in length.

         

The pipes are fitted in a special Ventagecase. The Ventage pipe case was invented by Alfred Dunhill in 1919 and patented the following year. The name is a combination of the words “Vintage” and “ventilation”, as those cases are equipped with a ventilation channel so that the used pipe can continue to dry in the closed case.

 

Only a few units have been manufactured in this production, only a total of 34 pipes across all finishes will be available.
