Re: Roger Blough Horns

I recently honked my KM85 and 110 together on a boat, and they don't sound like the horns in that video. Those might be Kockums MKT models.

Re: WSOR 101's Nathan M3 diagnosis

Sounds like it's blowing, just really weak. Could be a cracked diaphragm or worn diaphragm seat. You'll have to disassemble it to figure out for certain.

Re: identifying brass horn

That's a Wabco marine horn. The first photos shows the Westinghouse logo, the second photo is a part number. It's similar to an E2, but has a side port instead of a bottom port.

Re: Leslie Chamber Question

Is the diaphragm seat level? Check it with a straight edge across the face of it.

Re: Length Vs Hertz Output Formula

It also depends on the shape of the bell; I don't think there is an easy way to calculate it. Might as well experiment with different lengths and see what you get.

Just get in your time machine and dial in "2008"


I'll dial in 1950 and pick up a couple H6's and N3's!

Sandblasting ruins the finish of die cast K bells, so if Matt was going for the die cast finish, sandblasting wouldn't work. Even walnut shells or red garnet messes up the finish.
