ok, my Froggy needed some stronger voice in negotiating the traffic (and some people), so the proper air horn was perfectly installed behind the GTS' tie, by the Cafe Racer 69 here in Berlin

I tell you, that horn presents authority, even in company of the vans and trucks ... at least for the shocking moment until the punished ones notice that there is not an 18-wheeler next/behind them, giving me the opportunity for a smart filtering maneuver or giving them a lesson on their misdeeds

now, now and then, it happens that you get stuck with some genuinely nice people, who deserve more something like a small, gentle massage rather than fully blown ear drums

I wished for installing additional horn, run on special button, which have that almost I-bring-you-a-smile effect, very old-fashioned Vespa horns.

can you recommend such a horn, where to buy and ideally the link to some YouTube video for a sound check prior the purchase?

P.S. an compact version of an "Ahoooogah"" Vintage Classic 12v Klaxon would be good as well. I underline: COMPACT

P.P.S. this guy actually inspired me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lv8wqnk_TsA

thank you in advance

The old horns are different voltage and different current from the new, modern bikes. Old is 6v vs 12v in new ones. And one uses ac for the horn vs dc; I don't remember which is which.
