Holiday Open House

Artist and Luthier Ian Schneller welcomes you to SPECIMEN Open House – 1240 N. Homan Chicago IL 60651.

Sure to be filled with music, good cheer and a feast for your eyes and ears, come make your holidays merrier!

Chicago guitarists Bill MacKay and Ryley Walker will perform songs from their new record Spider Beetle Bee on Saturday Dec 9.

Let Ian introduce you to the place where creative magic and precision handwork transform beautiful organic materials into fine stringed instruments and the sculptural audio speaker systems that grace concert halls and private homes.

This is where the SPECIMEN XL Horn and Janus sound system with which Andrew Bird sets his Gezelligheid shows were designed and crafted.

Hear the legendary holographic sound from an array of SPECIMEN Hi-Fi Audio Speakers and Tube Amplifiers.

See the unique and beautiful stringed instruments designed and handmade by Ian on display.
