    Interesting read, if light on the details, figured worth posting:

    3-D printing revives bronze-age music

    Guy saw what was called an ancient Irish 'conical spearbutt', thought it was actually a mouthpiece for a horn. He couldn't get the original artifact, but got the dimensions and 3D printed it, stuck it in an ancient Irish horn, it sounded good. Pretty cool!
