I'm printing off an Expert Senior horn as I write! Anyone need one to order?

I would do an All-Range but I can't get it through the door opening so what's the use? :lol:

Are there any books available that describe the specific dimensions by which these horns were built, or the principles by which they were designed to facilitate the building of new horns?

The best book to read initially is: "Modern gramophones and electrical reproducers" by P Wilson and G W Webb first published in 1929. In my opinion, it is the "Bible" for our interest.

All the remaining new Oversize horns now finally have appropriate fully restored, and I hope interesting, base units and the end of the project is near. The horns are ready for papering or painting or can be left as they are. It has been fun and I have very much enjoyed the thirteen year challenge.

A fascinating adventure, and amazing craftsmanship. I hope I will be able to hear one in person some day!

You would be more than welcome to visit at any time when next in the UK. Experiencing all the different models of EMG and Expert instruments is huge fun. We are lucky enough to have most types here in darkest Hampshire !

Fantastic to see, and a real marvel that this project has been undertaken with such resounding success - heartiest congratulations Graham! You must have an enormous sense of satisfaction.
