Last weekend at the UK annual NVCF I met a gentleman who was planning to build the "ultimate" reproduction radio-gramophone. He wanted to use "high-end" period components coupled with modern reproductions wherever necessary. He envisaged a giant "papier mache horn" like the classic radio horns of the 1920's and 30's but driven electrically!

He asked me what I thought and did I know anyone who might have a few ideas or would be able to help! ;) I gave him Graham's contact details solely via this forum. Now that would be an interesting meeting of minds!

Let us know Graham if anyone makes contact about such an idea.

I assume you're "finished" with regard to producing ANY more horns though?

For the record, here is sight of the drawing showing salient dimensions for the initial EMG Xb swan-neck casting and photos of the template used to ensure correct internal profile/measurements of the EMG Xb Oversize horn bell.

I have a small number of Xb conduits available for sale should anyone be short of such a thing.

Just in case anyone hasn't already spotted it, there is an ORIGINAL Wilson horn for sale, this Saturday 16th September at Willingham Auctions, Cambridge. This is a very rare opportunity to complete an early EMG Wilson Horn Model or Mark 8. I've never seen one for sale on its own before! More details on the Saleroom:
