Desginphiles and audiophiles, listen up. The local company Specimen Products, which for 20 years has been building custom guitars, horn speakers, and more for the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Jeff Tweedy, and Neko Case, just came out with these cool Little Horn Speakers. Available in several colors, the horns are made from lacquered fiberglass on a lacquered 8-inch birch plywood cube. Dimensions are: 36 inches high from base to top, 14 inches in diameter (the horn). A pair starts at $1,850.These speakers (in a larger version) have graced many a stage with Chicago indie fave Andrew Bird. Love this melding of graceful design with industry cred. Check out the Specimen Web site for more details.
