Rare Pearsian Nutwood Klipschorns

A good friend is selling his extremely rare 1982 Klipschorns. These feature a rare engineered veneer. I believe Klipsch had Persian Nutwood and Rambling Rose. I've only spotted a couple of these in the wild. It is speculated that maybe they made up to 50 speakers in each veneer.

Klipsch Pilgrimage In Hope AR April 26-29th 2017

This years Klipsch Pilgrimage to Hope Arkansas is a really special one. The events will kick off with a ribbon cutting of the Klipsch Museum Of Audio History and the founding of the Klipsch Heritage Museum Association. The Klipsch museum building and contents have been donated very generously by Klipsch to the Klipsch Heritage Museum Association. KHMA will be a non profit with goals of preserving the legacy of PWK and his archives. PWK corresponded with all of the greats in the audio industry and kept every correspondence. This museum is more than just about preserving the Klipsch legacy but scores of untold stories from the glory days of the entire Hi-Fi industry. Klipsch Historian Jim Hunter makes new discoveries all the time. 
 For more information about the Klipsch pilgrimage please check the following links to the Klipsch forums. There will be museum, factory, laboratory tours and a chance to listen to exciting new speakers in the Klipsch factory listening room.
 If you care about preserving audio history and the goals of Klipsch Heritage Museum Association there will be an opportunity to donate at the pilgrimage and become a member of the Klipsch Heritage Museum Association.
 Once the Klipsch Heritage Museum Association website is live there will be many ways to contribute online and become a member of the museum. I will be posting and soliciting donations once this is possible.












If you are a Klipsch fan or a fan of audio history please consider attending this years pilgrimage.

Persian Nutwood Klipschorns KBPNL

These are the only pair of Persian Nutwood Klipschorns I have seen in the wild. They look incredible and sound even better in person. There are lots of Klipschorns out there but not many this unique.
That grain pattern is psychedelic. 
The classic cane grills compliment perfectly.
These beauties are on eBay right now. 
The seller is top notch and has 100% feedback.

The Vitavox Klipschorn

This is a rare ad from Vitavox from the mid 60's. Their take on the Klipschorn is one of the best ever done. Unlike competitors they actually paid licensing fees to Klipsch.

Brociner Coner Speaker

Licensed of course from Klipsch but here is an early Brociner advert. It features the K5 with trusonic hf driver and 500hz network. The ad says Pisa but every example I have seen had a Trusonic.

Bass Horns - BIG AND LOW - 1989

This article was released on the heels of Bruce Edgars Voigt article and PWK interview. I have great appreciation for Bruce Edgars early work. This article by Brian Taylor is rather recent for what I usually post.
 I really like the unfolded Klipschorn pic. Amazing that this was folded into something so small as the Klipschorn bass bin.

RIP Radio Shack - Vintage Ad Featuring Klipschorn

 Radio Shack has been a zombie for years and just didn't know they were dead. HAH Zombie Shack... Good riddance on one hand as they forsake what made them great and were reduced to batteries and phones. On the other hand I'm sad to see them go for rare time they have parts I need in stock. The problem is they usually didn't have the parts in stock I needed. I would rather have seen Parts Express take them over.

These ads must have been late 40's or early 50's because PWK put an end to licensing his products early on due to quality issues.

That is one crude Klipschorn ad.... Dang...
