History of Brass Instrument Makers
Click the linked names for pages covering these instrument makers. These are pages that I've added over the last few years that include some interesting history of the maker or seller of the featured instrument(s). Like everything on this site, this is not a comprehensive list and includes little on my favorite Early US makers that are covered far better in the various articles by Robert Eliason. However these are mostly firms that were important to the US market. Some of these are from my own research and others are reporting from previously published histories. I add to these histories as more facts come to light.
