"Little Texie" is an Analog Tele-Phonographer made from an antique nickel-plated trumpet (cornet? I'm not sure. It was really small, but not quite picket trumpet small) and part of a nickel-plated trombone. The damaged section of horn has been removed and shortened, then mounted vertically on a heavy chunk of solid salvaged steel.
This piece is very small, and the elaborate engraving on the bell says it was made by a Texas company. I don't get many horns with this much engraving on them, and 99% of them are made in Elkhart, Indiana. That makes this piece extra Texas special! They say everything is bigger in Texas, but this horn is small enough to go anywhere. Put it next to the bathtub, on the kitchen windowsill, or take it to the beach. You'll love it!
This horn will make the sound from your iPhone 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 whenever possible.
This piece is shown with a stainless dock for iPhone 6, but docks are available for iPhone 6+ or 4-5s. The dock is easily removed (with no tools required!) and can be replaced for future upgrade.
