The Hornlet comes to you from Specimen—masters of handmade instruments and audio equipment. Each one of these vintage-inspired speakers is produced in Chicago using premium Baltic birch plywood for the bases and recycled newsprint, shellac, and dryer lint (yes, really!) for the magnificent towering horns. Pair them with your existing hi-fi setup, iPod, or home theater for flawless sound and an unforgettable atmospheric accent.
Unlike most makers of instruments and audio gear, Ian Schneller began his career as a sculptor. This unusual start gave him a unique perspective on musical objects as art, and he continues this tradition in his Chicago workshop today. Specimen’s custom guitars and tube amps appeal to musicians worldwide due to their top-notch performance and astounding aesthetics.
