Tim Crosby Banded Horn with Kris Polizzi Strap

This 2013 horn by Tim Crosby is a medium sized North Carolina Piedmont Style banded horn, with a poured pewter tip.  The beehive style base plug is unique in that it is routed so the butt of the horn fits up inside. 

Kris Polizzi worked from photos of the horn to produce a woven strap that picks up the colors of the horn.  The ends are braided to facilitate attachment.  Typical of her lovely work.
