"Orion" is an Analog Tele-Phonographer made from an old trumpet, some trombone parts, and the valve body that may have come from an alto horn. It's attached to a base made from salvaged steel, and has been left uncoated, so it will continue to age with a natural patina.
This diagonally-oriented piece is jubilant, and presents itself in a regal form, as if it were making an announcement. Two of the valves have been fixed in place, and the third functions as a fully analogue mute button. This piece will make a fantastic conversation piece in your foyer, den, or music room. Your friends will all be jealous, and your neighbors will seethe with envy. Who doesn't want seething neighbors?
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.
