Finest brass Made in Germany
As an experienced and innovative manufacturer of brass instruments from beautiful Middle Franconia in Germany, we and our 25 employees focus on the perfect balance of craftsmanship and technology. For the further development of our instruments, we rely exclusively on experts in the brass subject such as Malte Burba, Branimir Slokar or Bart van Lier. With them, we rely on 100% manufacturing in Germany and deliver consistently high quality for a unique sound and more playing pleasure. As a multiple winner of the German Musical Instrument Award, our family business, now in its 4th generation, contributes not only to the improved performance of professional players such as Till Brönner, but also to yours!
Always strike the right note - with a brass instrument from our manufacture
When you touch people by playing an instrument, spreading good humour and joie de vivre, then musicians’ dreams come true. In addition to musical talent and a lot of practice, it depends to a large extent on the instrument you play how – or whether – this goal is achieved and how much joy you will feel as the player. The first-class piston valve instruments, trombones and rotary valve instruments from our manufacture all guarantee a balanced tuning and easy response as well as good intonation – essential qualities that give your playing the desired polish.
Easy response and playability with precise sound means a great relief for the beginners among you when entering this fantastic hobby and promises a noticeable sense of achievement.
Otherwise, brass instruments of inferior quality unfortunately all too quickly spoil the joy of the newly discovered passion. Therefore, rely exclusively on high-quality products right from the start to achieve the best possible progress.
The experienced players, professional musicians and experts among you will appreciate the award-winning quality of our brass instruments, which is essential for them in their quest for constant musical improvement. In addition to pleasant timbre and precise tones tested by measuring computers, we pay special attention to the ergonomic ease of use of all our instruments, so that even prolonged playing, for example in the orchestra and at concerts, is possible comfortably and without fatigue. This helps your performance to be secure throughout the entire playing time.
