That's what I meant.
I could only find primitive drawings that showed something attached to the horns, and then a rope and pulley system attached to that object. Using this object by itelf to weight the horns down, like you suggested, may just be it.
I'm in total aggreement with you. Guess we'll have to "weight" to find out .

If I put a horn weight on my car will it lower the pitch of the horn?
