  • 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



      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.

          1. Hi. John

              1. Hi Sethi, I removed your email from the comment so you don’t get spammed. But I will contact you now to be in touch.





  • 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!

  • 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.



  • 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?

  • 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.



  • 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.



  • 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…

      1. Oh we’re back alright! Just in case anyone is wondering . I’ve asked a few recent customers if they’d care to comment or send along a photo of their horns in use. Fingers crossed they get back to me. Best, John

We love squeeze horns! Especially the brass honkers we import from India! A labor of love. Happy Honking!
