Fiddle + Hammer was founded by Jordan Waraksa, who brought his background in sculpture and music into the making of the Bellaphone. The design was developed over a decade. “The horn is a testament to harnessing the resonant and warm qualities of the wood which they are carved from,” said Waraksa. Each custom-built speaker can be built to a variety of sizes, from two feet in height to a towering six feet.

Waraksa has thus far created a few prototype Bellaphones from reclaimed tequila and whiskey barrels. He also writes and records music that he tests out on his creations. The Bellaphone was recently presented at Wanted Design for New York Design Week.
