dampen the horns (Orphean)

Robert, your use of the lead and nonslip pads is certainly a neat and easily removed tweak. Thanks for the idea. I have never dampened my Oris 150 horns, but I planned to try. I have already bought an amount of tan Mortite which will allow me to apply several bands all the way around the horns. If you are not familiar with Mortite it is a heavy clay loaded soft caulking compound which never hardens.

Bert has often expressed the opinion that his horns sound better undampened. I respect Bert's opinions, but sometime one must try things and hear for themselves. We all hear differently. I'm sure the Mortite would serve the purpose, but if I decide that I agree with Bert your method sure will be easier to remove. I plan to run by a gun store tomorrow and buy lead shot sold to shooters who reload their own shotgun shells. Thanks again. for the idea.
