Specimen Launch Recycled Speakers

Want to help the planet using the power of music? We've got the gadget for you.

You needn’t recycle purely due to peer pressure a secret desire to feel smug. It turns out there’s a practical application too.

Specimen was started back in 1981 by Mr. Ian Schneller. Using his background in art, he combined this knowledge with his handyman skills (he was a dab hand at building and repairing instruments for friends and fellow musicians) he started creating his own goods. Specializing in custom handcrafted music equipment, his aim was to teach ‘the vanishing art of hand tool use’.

This led him to create the horn speaker, which is made from recycled newsprint and moistened dryer lint (as well as all the technological stuff that makes it work). The speakers range in height; the smallest at about 19 inches and the biggest a mammoth seven feet tall. The only issue you’ll have with these is strenuously avoiding a ‘I don’t want to toot my own horn’ joke (you’re better than that). They’re available from Specimen’s site right now in a varying number of sizes.
