INFLUENCE OF THE HORN ON SOUND RECORDS 
of air inclosed by the horn. The quantity and quality of 
resonance depends mainly upon the volume of the inclosed 
air and somewhat upon its shape. If the walls of the horn 
are smooth and rigid, they produce no appreciable effect 
upon the tone. But if the walls are rough or flexible, they 
may absorb or rapidly dissipate the energy of vibrations of

the air of certain frequencies and thus by subtraction have 
an influence upon tone quality. The horn of itself cannot 
originate any component tone, and hence cannot add any¬ 
thing to the composition of the sound. The horn is an air 
resonator and not a soundboard ; any vibrations which the 
walls of the horn may have are relatively feeble and are re¬ 
ceived from the air which is already in vibration, while in 
the case of a soundboard, the air receives its vibration from
