 Model Brasshorn 21-inch auxiliary speaker
 Description Model: Brasshorn 21-inch Auxiliary Speaker (Hendrix!!) This is a very rare, very collectible original Wurlitzer Brasshorn with stand and case. It was designed in the 1960s as an add-on speaker/horn for Wurlitzer organs, to powerfully boost and brighten the sound over a long distance (friendly warning: Wurlitzer advise not standing close than six feet from the Brasshorn!) It will also work fine with any sound source via an amp with an auxiliary speaker output (an 8 ohm impedance rating is suggested but this is probably very flexible). I saw Jimi Hendrix use a Brasshorn at The Marquee Club in 1967 - it added amazing high-midrange boost to his guitar solos, and looked very very cool! Simply connect the Brasshorn's long (over 28 feet) cable to your amp's auxiliary speaker output (1/4-inch jack plug). A solidly-made foot switch is installed partway along the cable, allowing you to turn the horn on and off. Real brass horns of two sizes are provided (21-inch & 9-inch - 53 & 23cm: roughly equivalent to a trombone and a trumpet). You plug the horn into the driver, which is then mounted at any desired angle onto a matching brass-coloured stand, adjustable in height from approx 40 inches - 75 inches (1 - 1.8m). A very classy-looking setup which comes neatly packed in a typical brass instrument case made of solid wood with black tolex finish and thick red velvet lining (case size is 37in x 9in x 9in - 93 x 23 x 23cm). Recently tested - works fine - no power is required so there is really nothing to go wrong. The condition is remarkably clean and bright for all parts, with a little rust on the horns and stand. These are excellent even as museum pieces, but can also add an amazing brightness and power to your organ, electric piano, and even, as mentioned, your guitar!
