Group of Vuvuzelas
The Vuvuzela is a wind-instrument without valves, also called soccerhorn. It is used by fans in the soccer stadiums of South Africa.
It has a length of around one meter, with straight stretching of the cylindric tube which widens up only at its end. It is a simple fanfare trumpet rather than a horn.
The monotonous sound of a vuvuzela reminds of a low-pitched shiphorn or the trumpeting of an elephant and can reach a sound level of 130 db. The lips, pressed into the mouthpiece and then vibrated, create the sound. Originally Vuvuzelas were made out of tin, since the 1990s however primarily out of plastic in different colours.
