The Boghorn is a windinstrument made from a brand new Armitage Shanks toilet bowl as part of the Confluence project. The sound is generated with a trumpet and a trombone mouthpiece and can be played by two musician together.

The range with both pipes is over three and a half octaves. The sound resembles across between a euphonium and a french horn. It has six holed chanters that give the notes between the natural harmonics, plus a neat foot operated lid lifting device that acts as a mute.
