Mini Hornicator custom made by Thomas

from Thomas Truax

Pre-book your very own MINI HORNI, individually crafted by Thomas!

There's only going to be a Very Limited number of these made, signed and numbered. (Years ago I did some mini Sister Spinster drum machines and stopped at 7 and they have become quite valuable). There will probably be a few more than that with these (UPDATE: There will be no more than 14, the majority are already sold) so they are bound to be rare collectors items!

Each will have pluckable strings and tiny frets, just like the big Horni, and a solid steel stand. It wont be suitable to play Mozart on, but you shouldn't have too much difficulty eking out a passable rendition of 'Prove It To My Daughter' (just like the big Horni).

NOTE: 25% off for Full Moon Music Club Members!*

You can choose to have yours in beautiful weathered brass-like finish, like the big Horni (Cool!), or sexy naked shiny chrome silver (nice!). Each one will have its own mini-blemishes or character flaws (just like the big Horni), and an old-world charm.

You can see a video of the very first Mini Horni I made here:

If you'd like your personal Horni customized in some other way (a pickup installed, or a light inside? I can do that) Something else? Let me know and I'll see what we can manage. (There will be a small additional charge )

As an added note I have to stop to give some credit-where-credit-is-due here and tell you that the inspiration for these came from a fan named Dom (are you reading this Dom? contact me if so, I don't know how to get hold of you). About 6 years ago he approached me at the end of a show and gave me a gift in a small box, in which there was a 'Baby Hornicator' -smaller and a little less fancy than these, but he'd made it himself and it BLEW MY MIND and warmed my heart, one of the best and most unexpected gifts I've ever received, so thanks again Dom. Every person I've shown it off to since then has wanted one,'s your chance!

* Note: For the discount remember to join the club first before you place your order, and be sure to be logged in when you do.
Further Update: There's now a second ordering page for Members Only with the discount already applied. You should see that in the Merch page when you're logged in so use that page if you're a member. Thanks! -Thomas
