As Chicagoans, we are very fortunate to live in a culturally and artistically rich town amongst many artists, tinkerers, and dreamers. A shining star and local hero among these visionaries is Ian Schneller, founder of Specimen who for decades has been dreaming up and building the most creative and unusual musical instruments, amps and reproducers seen anywhere. Specimen’s 5000 square foot shop in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood provides the workspace for such dream instruments and houses an amazing collection of tools, jigs, and parts with plenty of room to spare. It is here that Ian and his staff of technicians invent, design and build superior quality electric guitars, ukuleles, lutes, basses, violins and mandolins as well as elegant tube amps for instruments and Hi-Fi stereo systems and audiophile speaker systems.
