Michelin horns
fiogf49gjkf0d
Apologies for DIY flavour, but what, I wonder, do people make of the following technique for damping relatively thin-walled large horns, in pseudocode...

For horn length x = at throat to at mouth

     Take a length of y mm diameter braided cable sleeving
     Fill with stone aggregate of particle diameter > max sleeving wall gap
     Wrap around horn at x

end

By varying y one can adjust damping at different points along the length of the horn, if that turns out to be beneficial. Another advantage is that because the sand is not bonded one might get better damping than with most other materials.

Any criticisms?
