Frugel-Horn Mk3 Picture Gallery
 
By now there must be a few DIY builds of this design - including any of several suppliers of flat-pak kits, or scratch builds.

Those folks who haven't already done so are invited to post photos of their build process or finished project - either to this thread or forward to Dave at the commercial website address listed below.

Colin(aka Toppsy) had some of the 1st pretty ones, and has built quite a few:

You do realize that the design is a timeless classic? No less so than the Coca-Cola bottle, the VW Beetle and the Kikkoman flask. Please forgive me my being so dramatic, but this is serious stuff :)

old enough already to be timeless?

it is a sensuous shape - and to think they might not have had that tilt-back

:) I think so, yes. Timelessness is a property that is manifested immediately. Time will pass, but these will still look gorgeous.

Some very nice examples so far. I have more in progress I'll post pics when they're done.
How do you think a set in 1/4in steel and chrome plated would sound?
