"Big Mama" is an Analog Tele-Phonographer made from a beautiful antique tuba, antique trombone, and antique trumpet (all silver plated and wonderfully engraved on the bells). It's attached to a base made from scrap steel, and has been left uncoated. The silver has been partially polished, to show off its beauty, but partly left natural, to honor its history. You could polish it further, or you could let it develop a darker patina over time.
This piece is enormous. It will take up an entire corner of your home. The sound from your iPhone or iPad will fill up the rest. Since the horn is made from three different bells, it reproduces the widest range of frequencies possible.
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.
