In the past, the Yemenite Jews used two types of Shofars: a Shofar made of a ram’s horn, and a long spiral Shofar made of a bushbuck’s horn. The Jews of Yemen and Bagdad did not use to straighten the horn and then drill a hole in it, but rather, cut the horn all the way to the hollow part. This type of Shofar produces a low echoing sound. Some Jews in Yemen would also use the horn of an ibex, which was a common animal in their area. This horn is very long, and there is no need to drill a hole in it, thus, making the Shofar from it was easier. Some of them used to decorate the Shofar with precious stones.
To this day, Yemenite Jews use the long and spiraled, roughly bent upwards Shofar. As previously said, the Shofar’s deep sound, sounds like an echo arriving from distances, somewhere away in the desert. Some people think that the Yemenite Jews preferred the strong echoing sound because Abraham had sacrificed the ram at a mountain, and echoes remind us of the mountains.
