Is it a Megaphone?

The ‘Megaphones’ appear to be an eponym but they’re actually speakers. One of the ideas behind the Megaphones was to bring back “nobility” to the object: let’s replace the cheap electronics with hi-fi components. Let’s replace the plastic with wood but let’s keep the iconic shape. The final product is unique and has a distinct Dutch quality to it. Love the craftsmanship.

    Smart but very different. I wonder if they give a good sound

    I miss the old stereo component systems and big speakers. Everything now is small and plastic. These are very cool, but I don't like the unfinished-wood look.

      Component systems and big speakers still exist. Most people don't buy them, but they're still out there, and better than ever.

    like the idea and especially the unfinished wood look.

  • A megaphone would be the best way, but when we recorded out album, we piped our vocalist through some ancient mic and a very small cigarette box amp/pedal thing. We sent it to some verb after it was recoreded and sounded amazing. I am sure with a guitar amp and some good old distortion and experimentation, you will come up with a sound totally youre own.
    Dont be affraid to use the gain control!

    I know Megaphones don't usually have stands, but more work done on that part could be nicer. I mean, the foot stand should impress as much as the rest of your build, as well as hide away the dodgy wires lol, awesome woodwork btw.
