  1. hope you guys are not permanently defunct… I just found you and want to do some bid’ness…
    in the market for some horns (I love the silly things, too) and particularly the mounting brackets
    that you’ve had made up, very cool… if someone’s still out there in the digital wasteland, and
    planning to resume ops anytime soon, plz. contact me so that we may conduct some sort of
    bulb horn transaction… best regards, John D…

  2. Tim bought a sqeeeze horn from you a year ago
    How to clean the rubber bulb
    It leaves your hand black!

    1. I’m just discovering this myself. What I’m suspecting is that the second batch of horns I received included bulbs with inferior rubber quality. I’ve cleaned mine with dish washing detergent.

  3. Hello I am looking to buy just the ball that squeezes as mine has disappeared from my horn bell. Do you know where I could purchase one? Or coul I et one from you? The opening diameter is 1 cm.
    Thank you

    1. Sorry, I don’t just now. Also the bulb on our horns is larger than 1 cm. If you do find a source please let me know.

  4. I have about 20 squeeze horns that I purchased from WalMart and the horns are used on a kids barrel ride train.
    the horns are made in China and are sold under the names of Bell and Kent bicycle accessories.
    The plastic and brass reed valve will fail/break after a few minutes of the kids honking them.
    Do you have a vendor or manufacturers that will sell replacement reed valves only?

    replacing the valve would be an quick and simple fix, but the stores that I purchased the horns from tells me the have to replace the whole horn.
    can you help?

  5. Hi,

    Are you back to selling horns? Though they were a couple of years old, I’ve seen a few posts on your site saying that you had stopped temporarily.

    I’m looking to purchase two – a 7″ brass and a 10″ double-bell brass.

    I look forward to hearing from you, thank you.

    1. OMG, that’s amazing and opened up to a ton of other similar vids on YT. Thanks for the link. I’ll build a post with the best of these type of Desmo Horns I can find.

      1. They spell it many different ways.
        Desmo, Deshmo, Deshmuk, Deshmukh.. Sometimes bhopu.. Maybe that will help you ask for the right things.

  6. Good morning, evening, afternoon and night! I have great interest in your insightful encyclopedia of bulb horns of many! But I was wondering if you would be able to identify several of these bulb horn/noisemaker sounds. I’ve created a compilation of these sounds (Warner Bros./Looney Tunes horn sounds) that way they’ll be easy to tell apart. I’m hoping this won’t be a hassle! Do take your time. Thank you and have a great day!

    1. Very interesting, thank you. Looks like he’s mostly dealing with vintage motorcycle horns. I’m getting some great ideas for attaching brackets for bike handlebars from looking over his site. Thanks again Iguana.

  7. Hi John, I am from Mumbai and we have these horns used in the autorickshaws ( tuk tuk) and the state run buses.
    I have found some people making these brass horns STILL in Mumbai, perhaps these are the last of the breed but these can still be sourced here in Mumbai . Drop me a line on … and we can take ahead.


    1. Hi Al, I replied by email (took your address out of the comment so it wouldn’t be public). Thanks and excited to discuss. Best, John
