    Congratulations Ewan!

    Just curious who does your valve blocks (if it's not proprietary info).

    Nice rendition of "In the Hall of the Mountain King" in your video!! ;-)

    Cheers

    Very cool!

    Will you also (eventually) be introducing other products that we've seen you post here before? I remember a mute and some very nice finger buttons a while back...

    I look forward to seeing more!

    Congratulations on seeing your dream realized! I would love to drop by and see your trumpets in person, the next time I am in Toronto. Will you also be offering any trumpet repair or refinishing?

    This is a good question- I have a couple horns in need of valve refit if you're up to the challenge

    Currently, I am using Carol valves, like many others.

    I would love to make a nice flugel at some point, but I also don't want to spread myself thin too soon. I have to contain my curiosity and excitement and focus on one instrument for now.

    Brass Repair is my day job, and playing is my 'night' job, and trumpet making takes up every time in between those. I hope to adjust the ratios of each in the future.

    I could definitely take a look at the horn and determine whether or not it needed major valve work, but we don't offer it where I work. Your best bet would be to get Ron Partch to send it down to Anderson's and then have him do the dialing in when it gets back.
