S. Bang: Smooth Paneled Horn (UN) (1974)
Product Number: 002-816-0033
Ulf Noltensmeier, one half of the venerable S. Bang duo, has utilized dramatic proportions to highlight this remarkable Danish Horn. The wide expanse of the rim, softly convex with four soft sides where the stummel's panels meet the rim, quickly reduces down the length of the piece to the mouthpiece, which in saddle configuration holds little visual weight, maintaining concentration where it should be — up front. Four crisp, sharp ridgelines run all the way from the stem to the rim, softening somewhat at each end, at the top, bottom, left, and right in symmetrical precision. The two lower panels feature birdseye, the upper panels flame grain, with the rim combining the two. The legendary duo of Ulf Noltensmeier and Per Hansen have been crafting S. Bang pipes for 50 years, and they get better every year.- Chuck Stanion
