I spent a Sunday afternoon with my good friend Chris and the Tubehoarder. What we have here is the a Klipschorn Bass Horn for the low frequency. The mids and highs are being covered by a very large 10 cell Vitavox horn with a TAD 4001 driver.
Sorry I don't have very good pics as they are so big they suck in the light lol..
In case you are wondering about the wood grain that is the rare Persian Nut Wood.
This is the rigging for a prelim listening session but it looks great.
Just the right size.
Each section was powered by a George Wright 2A3 amp. The crossover I built with parts and plans given to me by Chris.
This is from my friend JC's tube amp. He is the guy who built my Jubilee, SnailTrac bass horns, and has also sent me cool horn stuff to play around with. He said he was listening to music when there was a horrible noise and a fuse blew. I've never seen this type of tube failure before. Which went first the glass or the fuse? How could this happen? Opinions welcome.
This four way horn system made an appearance on craigslist of all places. The price was under $20K. The custom horns look great and drivers are JBL and TAD. I wish I had better pics as craigslist scales them down.
Leave it to Senor Coconut to fix a song that drives me crazy. It starting to get hot here in the south perhaps my brain is cooking. I think this video is fun.. There are tiki drinks, perez prado samples and even devil girls.. Would have been a nice touch to have more dancing monkeys.

78 RPM Transcription System
Unlike other companies who tend to use modern electric pick ups to
transfer their records we prefer to play our 78s using an acoustic horn
gramophone. In doing this we produce a warm, vibrant and extremely
lifelike sound which requires very little processing (only the worst
clicks are removed) before issue. In fact the only 'electric' part of
the whole playback process is the Technics SL-15 turntable which is used
to ensure that the record is running at the correct speed.
If anyone has additional information please let me know.
