Featuring custom trombone and mouthpiece makers, including...


Since 1985, Greg Black has been hand-crafting mouthpieces to exact specifications, creating a product that far exceeds his customers' expectations. Musicians worldwide, including the New York Philharmonic, Broadway Musicals, and Recording Studios, recognize a commitment to excellence through superior craftsmanship.


Gary Greenhoe founded Greenhoe Trombones in 2002 after having had an influential role in trombone design for most of his 41-year career as a professional trombonist with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. The foundation of Greenhoe's trombones is its patented Greenhoe rotary valve system and the uncompromised craftsmanship that goes into each trombone.


With over 25 years of building world-class brass instruments, S.E. Shires Company is an industry-leading manufacturer of professional brass instruments. The S.E. Shires company slogan, "Quality without compromise," is more than simply a marketing tool. It is a conviction and fundamental principle for both manufacturing and design.


The Edwards Instrument Company was established in 1989 to meet the needs of professional musicians who have very specific ideas about how their instruments should sound and feel. Edwards is a subsidiary of Getzen and within the Getzen factory, a select group of their most experienced/skilled craftsmen are tasked with the production of Edwards instruments.


Conn/Selmer brands such as Vincent Bach, C.G. Conn and King have earned a legacy of respect. With Bach, Vincent Bach first ventured into making musical equipment after his mouthpiece was ruined on a tour stop in Pittsburgh. Since then, Bach has created some of the finest brass instruments and mouthpieces, a legacy which they carry on today.

We hope to see you there!
