Default 1Khz wooden horns for sale, interest?

I'm trying to establish if there is an interest for turned wooden horns.

Im near completing my first turned LeCleach 1.2khz solid Oak for a pair of BMS compression drivers. These come in at just under 135mmx70mm

I will of course post pics once its finished, would like to hear any thoughts.

I estimate a pair of good hardwood, oak, ash, beech etc, to cost around 100.

Bigger ones are planned...all should be up and running before the end of 2012.

Louis

Hey Louis,

Would you consider bespoke jobs?

Also saw you do spheres on your website...how much for a sphere?? Sizes?

Cheers

Apologies, didn't see any replies.

The first pair will be finished this month, pictures to follow.

These would be made to order, so can be entirely bespoke from the outset.

The spheres are from Ikea, I proudly cheated with those, they are the Blanda wooden bowls. If I can work out an easy and cost effective way to produce them I will.

At the moment the horns are all made from solid "wood turning blanks" there is an awful lot of waste in producing a 4" horn, would be almost impossible to produce a much larger one from a single block of wood. But with laminating as ikea do, is possible.

Mine are made from oak, as I had two matching 'blanks' but almost every timber can be sourced, and any horn profile carved, will just need some more templates to follow.

I'll post a pic of the progress so far, to rouse some interest.

Shipping for these small ones, shouldn't be any more than 15

Thanks for looking

Louis

First one finished.

Sorry if the pictures are massive. Iphones & Dropbox don't seem to work that well together.

These are 1.2khz Le Cleac'h hand turned oak horns. With a APT (celestial) super tweeter resting inside.

I still need to resolve the bolt on/screw on housing and plug them
In for a listen. Hopefully will find time tonight.

I have a matched piece of oak to finish the pair and some nice other blanks to try out a larger size.

Hi Leif. These are for 1" Drivers, but currently will be made to order, so can be tailored with custom horn entry size or even custom horn profiles.

My new lather arrived this week, I should be finally able to finish the pair, and perhaps try some larger ones.

Next on the list to to try segmented turning, allowing me to make really big horns, for 4" full range drivers or bigger...

Would be fine, Ill model the profile later and see how big it comes in at.

It should be possible to get it from a large wooden bowl blank, without the need for laminating or segmented pieces.

Are these TAD's bolt on connection?

Any ideas of what timber choice you want?

Louis
