Air horns are illegal on bikes in Germany (you dont want to disturb the drivers as they drive over you). I have therefore mounted a very large chinese bell that I bought on ebay (still probably illegal but I would rather be fined than dead) on my commuter. You can usually be heard by car drivers with it OK and you can just ping it gently at peds if you dont want to scare them.
