Gear Profile: Specimen Products & The Chicago School of Guitar Making – Part 2


Specimen Products is a unique custom guitar and amp shop located on Chicago’s West Side.

In this clip, Specimen founder Ian Schneller shows Guitar Shop TV his hand-built Little Horn speakers, which are exceptionally efficient yet also have a funky vintage look to them. These are smaller versions of the speakers Specimen Products created for Carnegie Hall. Schneller also shows off the 48 “hornlings and hornlettes” that Chicago multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird played through these in his “Sonic Arboretum” performance at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The speakers are handmade of recycled newspaper and, believe it or not, dryer lint. Check out Specimen’s impressive line of unique guitars and amps on specimenguitars.com, they are really something special!
