About

March 11, 2013 I’m on hiatus! When the horns are for sale again, the Paypal buttons will return.

Life intervenes! It could be a few months before things are stable enough to resume sales. In the interim you might find a similar horn available through THIS STORE on Amazon.

Welcome to SqueezeHorns.com. Don’t ask me why but I love these things and am excited to create a special place on the net where they can be given the attention they deserve! We’re new, but I can now report some happy customers!

The brass and nickel plated horns you see on the site I have in stock and will ship myself from home here in Venice California. I was very fortunate to find a good source for these one-of-a-kind hand made horns. Making the horns provides a livelihood to a clever group of craftspeople in a far off corner of the world.

The plastic horns I do not have in stock myself. I provide links to purchase them on Amazon or Ebay. If you purchase through my site I make about $.25 on the sale and it doesn’t cost you anything extra. Eventually I will also stock and ship the plastic squeeze horns myself, but importing from China requires a minimum order of usually 1000 horns!

Long term I am also hoping to develop a line of custom horns.

Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything or make suggestions for the site.

    Just received my purchase of one 16′ Brass Covered Bell. The Horn by far exceeded my expectations. I love the sound of the horn and how it looks on my beach cruiser. Shipping was quick and the customer service as amazing. Would purchase from squeeze horns again.

    Where can I get a bulb? I have an old horn.

      I’m in the middle of a move. I may have one but it will be a few more weeks before I’m in a position to start filling orders again.

    Hi, I wonder if you’re still on hiatus. If I were to get a brass squeeze horn and extend it with copper tubing and solder, around 4-5 feet long, would it still work?

    I have an old MG and I thought it would be cool to have the squeeze bulb in the passenger compartment, run the copper tubing through the engine compartment to the horn itself mounted behind the grill up front. Your advice would be appreciated.

      Hi Jeff, I remain on hiatus because I’ve been moving around so much. You should be fine with your idea as the sound source, the reed, is typically attached immediately adjacent to the bulb.

    Hey, there!
    So, I only just came across you, and imagine you’re still on hiatus, but I have a question to put to you –
    I’m a circus/sideshow performer, and I’m looking for pitched bike horns. As in, a set of bike horns that are pitched to a 12 note chromatic scale, to play music with. If you know anywhere I could find those or anything like them (or get the reeds and put them together myself), please let me know as soon as you can!

    Regards,
    -Trick

      You might find a few clues in this post: http://www.squeezehorns.com/2013/at-last-tuned-horns/ They are elusive. I did correspond with one performer who had them but he wouldn’t share his source. I’m pretty sure they were German made. If you do find a source please let me know. Best, John
