The Alphorn is a craftable Pre-Hardmode Big instrument. It releases ring projectiles above the player that home in on enemies. While held, the Brass Timer will appear below the player; the weapon's effects vary based on whether or not the timer is over a marker when attacking, as well as how long the rhythm has been held. When used, it empowers nearby players and the user with the Flat Damage I empowerment.

Correctly attacking while the timer is over a marker will increase the weapon's damage by 4%, which stacks with successive correctly timed attacks up to 120% increased damage.

  • Once the bonus damage has reached 40%, the ring projectiles will penetrate once and the alphorn will empower nearby players and the user with the Flat Damage II empowerment.
  • Once the bonus damage has reached 80%, the ring projectiles will penetrate twice and the alphorn will empower nearby players and the user with the Flat Damage III empowerment.

Its best modifier is Fabled.
