Vinyl Horns

Some sick bastard decided it was a good idea to turn vinyl into a horn shaped device. Hmm ok not a terrible idea. I can think of some vinyl I own that the world would definitely not miss nor would I feel bad about melting down. They are also doing this at a live event so check it out here http://www.fastcodesign.com/1664791/exhibit-bends-your-vinyl-records-into-speaker-cones.

  2. And Manatova and Percy Faith Strings records...... DIE DIE DIE!!!!!

    If I had a .05 cent for every Manatovin record in every Thrift Store in America I would be a gazillionair.

  4. I tried this a few years ago... very crude... just took 101 strings.... set it on top of a small Le Cleac'h horn in the Memphis sun... which baked it down and warped and wobbled it, but not into a horn shape... I was then too busy/lazy to take the next steps with what was just goofing off on a work day....maybe I should do it again... his time properly... three thick would make a nice 600 Hz horn....

    Peace,
    Me
