I just wanted to let you know that after buying a
gorgeous 47" Yemenite Pro Plus from the Shofarman, I was lured by a site
in Israel to buy a Gemsbok and a 24 inch Moroccan Ram's horn. The Gemsbok
looks like they cut the mouthpiece end off with a machete and drilled it
with a hand drill. They also put a small hole in the side which, of
course, ruins it unless you plug the hole. It in no way has what one
would call a mouthpiece and can only produce one note from the front
The Ram's horn is beautiful--as long as you look at it
from the correct side. The other side has a 1/2" crack in it and the
mouthpiece is so small you can only get a little squeak out of it. Side
blow is much better.
My Yemenite from the Shofarman (and a 12 inch Ram) are
works of art and easy (or easier) to blow. I repent. The Shofarman will
be my only source from here on out for Shofars. Many thanks for your
meticulous work on your products.
