Modern orchestra tuned to A being 440Hz.
Baroque time was 432Hz.

Your horn should play the opening 4 notes short segment of Beethoven 5th Symphony...lol

If you have too many notes can it make your radiator scale, give you a flat tire, a sharp smell, or many minor major problems?

Is there a free space under the grill for the distortion pedal and power chords? I'd be honking more frequently than twice in life if the honk goes through MXR 116.

As a young punk in college, I decided to put a pair of euro air horns in my old sports car, like Ferraris and Maseratis had. Well....when it gets very cold, like it did regularly there, the compressor freezes up and you only get one tone instead of two, and then that tone sounds like a dying bird. Embarrassing.
