Well...

For reliability, you could always go back to roots/ bosch...

Though, i dont think they are as loud as Hella/Stebel...

I have got roots installed in my esteem, Its been an year and a half that I bought it for Rs 500 +. These are still working very fine.

In my Indica I had put in the same horn which the accessory shop person said that they give with the Skoda. Its real loudy and that one was for somewhere around Rs 900 two years back. I have right now plugged in just one out of the two pieces of that horn in Indica. It was very loud when I use both simultaneously. The other piece is also fixed but not connected.

I have good news, I went to my mechanic the other day and mentioned to him about the horn. He heard it and stuck cloth in one pipe and asked me to blow the horn, then with the other a couple of times.

Cleaned it well and its screeeams! :-) Its perfect now, it was just dust so the horn was gasping for air!

My bolero has Hella RedGrill + Roots Vibrasonic (together for highway use)
---excellent response even from truckers on the road-----
and a pair of windtone (Optra one) for city drive. Vibrasonic goes out of tune often.

I have had similar combination on OHC, except I had a two pipe air horn. That Roots was resetted and tuned by a guy (I can't get hold of him now), you wont believe, That horn still works crystal tuned even after 4 years!!.

Is there any horn that gives out the screeching sound of a car?,the one that comes when u press ur brakes hard.would be useful to scare guys who just jump in the middle of the road.

Does anyone know which OE horn is used in the OHC Type 1?
You can see that the horn in the Type 1 is different from the one in the Type 2.

I want to replace th OE horn so if anyone can tell what brand it is and how much does it cost?

There is a normal mode in your melody maker. In that mode, the melody maker almost sounds similar to that of a normal horn !!!
