From old tuba to new iPad dock

Christopher Locke, an art teacher by day and eccentric artist by night, creates some of the most unusual iPhone and iPad docks ever to grace the pages of Crave.

As we move further away from our analog roots and become more entrenched in digital music, what are we to do with the forgotten musical instruments of yesteryear? Austin, Texas, artist and art teacher Christopher Locke has an idea. He salvages old horned instruments to create incredible audio players for the most ubiquitous digital music devices around.

The crazy contraptions in his series Analog Tele-Phonographer amplify the sound emitted by the iPad and iPhone through natural acoustics. "The shape of a trumpet makes a fart noise sound good, so it could obviously make an iPhone sound better," Locke told Crave. Check out his amazing creations in our gallery.
