Fun for the Brass Instrument Fanatic
I’ve just celebrated the completion of my 40th year in business and I continue to cut back my work load due to physical limitations. I still have a small list of used brass instruments for sale and I take on interesting projects as I am able to.
This website is intended to show my work and interests that I have spent the last 40 years developing. I have a passion for learning and sharing the history of the brass instrument industry and the instruments that they produced. I try to present this in the many pages linked through the gallery below.
