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.

further dimensions:

there are about 8 red rings at the bottom and and disc.

given that the length is the same as one section of 4 black rings and 3 spaces the red rings are about 5,2 mm thick.
edit: maybe I have to look closer and substract the thickness of the silver disc. This would mean: red rings are about 4 mm thick. This corresponds better to my perception that the red rings are narrower than the black rings.

the diameter of the red rings is about 41 mm. The diameter of the disc at the bottom is about 49 mm.
