Doc Severinsen

"I truly love this horn and it loves me back. I feel that if I am willing to practice there is no limit to what I can accomplish on this horn."

Ralph Sauer

"I have finally found an instrument that plays better than my old Elkhart 8H!"

David Bilger

We are pleased to announce the Model 419 Orchestral C Trumpet. Designed in collaboration with David Bilger, Principal Trumpet of the Philadelphia Orchestra, this trumpet features a big sound with ample core, easy response, and the ideal balance of breadth, clarity, depth and projection!

Michael Davis

"When Steve sent me our final version of the Michael Davis trombone in October 2010, it took one Bb scale to realize this trombone is without question, the finest instrument I have ever played. THIS is my horn."
