Timothy Gurney has taken it upon himself to singlehandedly recreate Western Electric horn designs from scratch. Working from his dedicated studio in France, Gurney utilizes turn-of-the-20th-century materials and period custom-fabricated tools to deliver the most authentic Western Electric replica horn experience possible to his customers.

Few, if any, modern audio engineers could profess ignorance of Klipsch’s groundbreaking folded-horn, corner-loading, three-way Klipschorn loudspeaker.
