"Holden" is an Analog Tele-Phonographer made from at least two trumpets and a trombone, and may have a few other parts as well. It’s mounted to a salvaged lamp base (with rare removable glass bowl) and has been left uncoated for natural patina over time. This is the only base with a removable glass bowl I have ever had, and it’s very cool.
You can use this horn to play “Sixteen Tons” and hold your thumbtacks at the same time. It will play “Monster Mash” and hold like seventeen M&Ms. Or if you live in Colorado or Michigan or Alaska or California or Maine or Massachusetts or Oregon or Washington or Vermont or Nevada or DC, you could use the little dish to hold your legalized cannabis while the horn plays Grateful Dead songs (or whatever y’all play while you take a weed. Rusted Root? Is Phish still a thing? I don’t know. I live in Texas). Anyway, the little glass bowl is really cool and rare, and makes this horn special.
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.
