If you want a speaker for your iPhone that looks different from all the speakers you can find at Best Buy, and you happen to have $400 burning a hole in your wallet, you might want to get yourself this cool speaker designed by artist Christopher Locke.
His creation, dubbed “Analog Tele-Phonographer” is built out of salvaged trumpet parts attached to a stainless steel base. Even though it doesn’t look like it, this speaker sounds surprisingly good. Dig the swinging sounds of Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” played through this speaker in a video when the iPhone is slipped into the holder.
A video of a different speaker made out of a different trumpet shows one of the trumpet’s keys being used as a “mute” button.
Locke uses old, discarded instruments to create something that’s very distinctive and a better use of the Earth’s limited resources rather than simply letting them rust in some junkyard.
