I recently found a nice North East Electric 6v Model XL horn and would like to know what type sound it should make. I have read about both "ahooga" and "dying goose" horns but don't yet know which this should be.
Can someone help with getting this horn to work? How do you adjust it for a better sound (if there is one)?
John Regan at Fun Projects is the man to talk to.
I'd bet its a "dieing goose" sound. Don
Northeast electrical products (horns, distributors, etc.) were used a lot of period Chrysler products, most particularly Dodges, that I am aware of. Find someone with a 20's or 30's Dodge and tell them to give you a honk.
Pretty sure that short back doesn't house a motor so to my eye it can't be an ahooga horn.
