Mystery Horn Identified


A few posts down I found a horn that I was unsure of its intended use.  Walter pointed me to a similar horn and it all came together.  I was puzzled by the flat top and back and that the mounting flange didn't form a full circle to couple to the driver.



I now know the reason and I had everything upsidedown, because it wasn't meant to couple to a driver but to the above the surface parts of a victrola.

I have never really paid much attention to victrolas and from afar I just assumed those louvers were shelves to store your78"s

I guess you learn something new every day.

  4. I know. I was just joking around. I though about writing victrola but I could remember if it was a specific brand. Hey I was just jazzed I was right. What diameter is the throat on it? Now you just need to find another one, lol.
