"Old Max" is an Analog Tele-Phonographer made from an antique silver-plated baritone (euphonium?), with parts from an antique silver-plated trombone. It's attached to a base made from an antique cast-iron lamp base, and has been left uncoated so it will develop a slight patina over time. I have polished some parts of it, including the area around the engraving on the bell, but have left some of the tarnish. You are welcome to polish the rest, or let it gradually darken.
This piece is so classy! They certainly don't make horns like this anymore. It's tall and elegant, and it sounds like a dream. The vertically-oriented bell reflects the sound off the ceiling, and wraps you in its warmth.
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 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.
