Here are a few pictures of my Wilson horn that could have been fitted to a Balmain.
It appeared on the Antique Road Show in an antique shop in Aberystwyth. I tracked it down and bought it thinking someday I will try and build a Balmain type gramophone. One day!.
It is 54” long and with the Lifebelt is 56”

Great to see these photos again Chunny and thank you for posting. The horn is in such excellent condition that it really should form part of a re-created Balmain some day. From an exponential point of view, it is almost a miniature of the Nimbus horn.
