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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

    2. Did you locate a replacement bulb? I also have an old rickshaw horn with a 2.75″ stem on a busted bulb. Most bulbs seem to have shorter stems.

      Curious to know if/where you found one. Cheers, p

  2. 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.

    1. 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.

  3. 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!


  4. hi, i am a circus performer and a amateur musician, i love the bulb horns, i have interest to have some of these, do you can to construct for me a tuned bulb horns? eigh specifictly, the musical scale, thankyou so much, and i wait for your answer

  5. We have had a squeeze horn for a very long time and it recently stopped working. The rubber ball is not leaking. When we plug up the bell end it appears to be air tight. What is wrong? Is there some type of orfice inside the ball?

  6. are you still in business? i would like to buy a horn, i play music and i want to use it on stage. i would like one that’s not too large , but has a lower tone, not squeaky. i’m also on a budget. thanks

  7. Hi,

    I am looking to speak to a bike horn expert for a BBC Radio 2 interview on Monday 24th July.

    Please can you give me a call ASAP on 07814473769.



    I have been looking every where for a squeeze horn sound effect for my adaptation of The Wind in the Willows!

    If you open up a donations option I will gladly contribute!

  9. Need someone who can repair my squeeze horn. It’s an older horn originally made in Pakistan. Bulb is fine, so it has to be a missing reed/s. Please email me with any suggestions. Thanks!

    1. Hi Robert, I replied in an email but if you can separate/unscrew the horn end of the brass tube from the bulb end, you should find a reed in there. It may have become corroded and fused together. Water and vinegar might clean the reed up enough to let your horn honk once again. Let me know.
