next dimensions and details:
I guess that the rods are of the same diameter as the black rings. So 5 mm copper-rods will do it.
There are two little discs between the three silver rods at the bottom.

First makeshift of the kloo-horn with the parts that I made today:
Tubes, slits and rings cut. Acrylic glas is a little bit nasty: when I cut it too fast there is too much heat so that the acrylic glas melts to a kind of instant superglue that stops all the saw-blade/ machine and it's tearing the tube apart. I have to cut it by very small steps and have to wait some seconds between each step.
I am happy with these dimensions and the look so far.

found another behind-the-scenes-picture that shows the last section on the bottom of the horn: four rings, another gap and then a disc. (the other sections just are: four rings and no gap to the silver rings).

today I filed down the edges of the tubes and rings to make them look better. I sanded the surfaces to improve the paint-adhesion. I made a structure for the cap and a draft version of the cap's covering made of a sheet of paper.
