"Absolute Unit" is an Analog Tele-Phonographer made mostly from an old tuba, with parts from trombones, trumpets, baritone, french horn, and some mystery parts. It’s attached to a steel I-beam base, with a detachable bottom section which may aid in transportation.
This piece is huge, and when used with an iPad at full volume, it’s uncomfortably loud. The sound is full and rich, with the different sizes of horns acting as woofer/midrange/tweeter. The person who purchases this piece will truly be making a statement to themselves and anyone else who visits their home or business. It’s impressive to say the least, and will sound great next to your pool, on your patio, or at your small steampunk wedding reception.
This horn will make the sound from your iPhone or iPad louder and richer, using no electricity, wires, plugs, or batteries. The shape of the horn is enough to add 25 decibels or more! But it's not just about volume, it's about quality of sound as well.
This work of art is hand-made, one-of-a-kind, and was created entirely in America with reclaimed materials.
This piece is shown with a stainless dock that fits every iPhone since the 4, and docks can be made to fit Android or other devices. The dock is easily removed (with no tools required!) and can be replaced for future upgrade.
Due to size and weight, this piece is currently offered ONLY with local pickup, or free delivery within 25 miles of Austin TX. Crating and shipping this piece would be prohibitively expensive. Please email me if you would like to discuss delivery, pickup, shipping, etc.
