    Gadgets Dept: Honk If You Love GPO

    You heard of Ringtones - now there are horntones



    http://www.horntones.com/

    The Horntones FX-550 system is the first mobile audio system that allows you to customize the sound of your vehicle's horn function using virtually any standard audio file.

    So if you made that stellar GPO, JABB or Strad demo - honk your horn to let the world hear it.

    You can honk your own sound clip for a chase scene, one for a bucolic country ride, relaxing music for rush hour, and some hot music to impress the opposite .

    I've been wanting to customize my jalopy with custom sounds for a long time and now it is possible.

    Too bad they don't have any examples...

    Reminds me of a project a friend of mine came up with in high school. He was concerned that nobody would notice his Honda Accord, and that he'd be flattened in an accident (this was when the Accord was fairly new, and pretty small). His solution was to go to the junk yard and buy an assortment of different car horns, connecting them all up under the hood. That way, he could be a one-car traffic jam. Don't think he ever followed through though...

    And you'd probably want a "defeat" switch, in case you were ever asked to demonstrate the horn for the nice officer who's pulled you over...

    You could ask the officer to pull your finger too

    Here's my rendition.
    GPO Road Rage in E, Movement No.1 for two GPO bassoons.
    For those who don't like reverb, there is also a dry version just for you

    Beautiful music to my ears! Is there a Movement No 2? Hope there's no crash...

    movement no. 2 is what happened to both Rebecca and Robert when the car burning rubber almost ran over them leaving the parking garage in a hurry. he he he
    Amazing how close those two bassoons in GPO actually sound just like a 1963 Chevrolet Bel-Air.
    I know Sean, you have never heard a 1963 Bel-Air horn honk,
    well I have, and that's exactly what they sound like. ha ha
