The Leiderhorn comes to you from Specimen—masters of handmade instruments and audio equipment. Each piece is produced in Chicago using premium Baltic birch plywood for the base and recycled newspaper, shellac, and dryer lint (yes, really!) for the magnificent towering horn. Paired with an existing hi-fi setup, iPod, or home theater for flawless sound, this vintage-inspired speaker is an ideal gift for any audiophile on your list.
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.
