I don't know whats so special about the noisemakers.   PA-100,Q, EQ  ?   So what?

If you want to remember what it sounded in the 'war years' before the electronic stuff and the "Q",s, just remember the old Fderal 28, which was on just about every rig the City had.   



Here's a link (too bad it's to a 'cop' site)     http://www.policeny.com/model28.html
