Robert Swanson and H6 #3 10/90

Postby miller49g » Fri Jan 04, 2019 8:15 pm

01/03/2019 In the pictures below are with Robert Swanson posing with the Hexatone H6 #3 horn. How I know this there were only two of these H6 horns painted black, H6 #3 and H6 #4 aka #1 now. And if you look closely at the top picture you can see when you compare it to my picture I took of H6 #3 on my truck a lot of the paint chipped spots on the bell flares matches each other pretty neat. I also want to say thank you to Katie Larkin. She found these 4 pictures dated 10/90 of Robert Swanson and H6 #3 in a purchased book lot in an estate sale she attended.

Swanson's true masterpiece

Everything that came after was literally a compromise
