These sound recordings and horns were created by Jeff Hammaker and Eric Marks

I was surfing the older posts and came across these sound files called "Draino's new Nathan K5LLB" and then another file called "Eric's Nathan K5HLB". It was at the Atoona 09 Horn Honk and these horns sent chills dowm my spine. Does anyone know the chordes and bells used and tuned to what? I would love to make this sound with one of my horns. Thanks

All 3 Classics in their own right Cool

The K5HLB & LLB is most likely K bells 1L (2pc), 1, 2, 3L & 4
(With all bells tuned on Key.)
C, D#, F#, A, & C with the low & high Cs octaving on the money.

It also might be a 3A (G#) instead of the 3L

This is the horn that inspired my K5HLLM,
K bells 1L, 1, 2, 3L & 4

That was the horn meet to remember and my favorite event to date that I've been to. Drainos K5LLB was bought new from Airchime without anything done to it. I'm not sure about Eric's K5HLB but both use the same bells being one piece 1L, 1, 2, 3L or 3B which ever you wana call it and a straight 4 bell. Eric's was a personal favorite of mine which I got the pleasure of honking once. That horn is 10 times better in person and I wish I had the money to buy it up when it was sold. The good news is I did manage to buy the 3L/3B bell from him. I'll have to take apart my K5H and make up a K5HLB of my own for a runby. Wonder how that will sound with a mix of die-cast and sand-cast bells Confused

I don't know who ended up Erics K5ST when he sold it,
but man - thats the one I would have liked to have grabbed for sure.

I remember reading about all the K bell mods Eric (and I believe Jeff Hammaker) did or had done, but it was very interesting to say the least.

Brilliant conception
Brilliant execution
Brilliant results

The Leslie T chord voicing from Airchime K bells of all things Cool

They are by far the best sounding K chord besides a healthy chessie horn. They have that S5T grunt to them which I love.

I have raised letters 1L,1,2,3,4a right now and a non raised letter 3a that has been tuned to blow the proper G#. So I will need a #4 bell. Hmmmmmm, Wheels are turning Very Happy

Question, can a strait #3 bell be tuned to blow the 3L chord or 3B?

That would be awesome if you could make that and do a runby so I can hear yours.

Yes,

I've bored two #3s down to the 3L (or new named 3B)
Plenty of room (or "meat" as some machinists might say)

K 3 bell = A# (if on key to the factory intended A#)
K3L bell = A (middle A on the scale or Keyboard)
