While stuck at home during the lockdown, Grateful Dead fan Anthony Coscia decided that he wanted to build a miniature version of the band’s legendary short-lived, but brilliant sound system known as the “Wall of Sound”. Coscia, who is an architect by trade as well as a part-time luthier, took several months to complete the monumental task. The finished model, entitled “Petite Mur De Son” (Mini Wall of Sound) features 390 working speakers and stands close to 7 feet tall. Once this one is fully complete, Coscia plans to build a larger version.
Recreating the Grateful Dead’s Wall of Sound in 1/6 scale. This is the first of increasing larger Walls with an end game of resurrecting the Wall of Sound as a permanent installation. Funded by Coscia Guitars – a labor of love!
