So if this experiment works out, the horn will produce a tone as "smooth as glass"?!

Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

Is just the bell going to be carbon fiber? If so, and the bell you will use is only going to be used as a mandrel to 'cast' the carbon fiber bell, then couldn't you just fill any small dents / dings with bondo and then sand out until they are gone for the transfer? Also are you going to cast directly on the outside of the bell, or create a mold of the inside of the bell, remove that, then cast the carbon fiber bell on that preserving the original bore size of the bell?
I have thought about that, the whole bondo thing.... Theres a few things i am unsure of though... I cant work with bondo... We just simply dont get along...LOL and im not sure what reactions it would have with mold release and the resin for the CF... As for the mold shape i am thinking i will do it as an over mold of the current bell shape, and basically slip it over the existing pipe coming out of the valve block... If that makes any sense...this is still just in the "how the heck am i gonna make this work" stages though, so it may all change in the end... Who knows.....
