Natural Sound

A wooden amp for phone enhancement

The Timbrefone Acoustic Phone Amp, made from Baltic birch, is a passive speaker. It works as a compact megaphone, corraling the phone’s sound and channeling it in a single forward direction, but looks more like a piece of sculpted artwork.

The compact device looks sharp in any decor. Ideal for home and office, patio and picnic, the speaker supports most iPhones and provides rich sound through its acoustic cone. The natural wood product was conceived by longtime friends Marc Stitzlein and Rich Norton, and made with fellow craftspeople at Uncommon Goods located in High Ridge, Missouri.

It measures 7.5 inches long, 5.5 inches wide and 3 inches tall. The phone slot opening is 3.5 inches long and 1 inch wide. No cords or batteries are required. Clean it easily with a damp cloth.
