  • The prototype of the ganu rags employed by the “Latvia” Company is the small horn. Its tube was wooden, 25-30 cm. Long, with 5-7 holes and a tied reed-togue. Its bell was made of a ram, ox, cow or kid horn. The timbre of the small horn was of two kinds: blowing softly – very sweet and pleasant, reminding that of the cor anglais, whereas blowing fard – sharp and penetrating. The compass of an instrument depended on its length as well as the number and position of holes. The first octave sounded best of all. While blowing the little horn one could produce various song and dance melodies, sutartinės and improvisations – trills.
