With the new lines of Yamaha Xeno instruments that have come out, Yamaha offers the opportunity to go to their "Artist Services" buildings and work directly with designers Wayne Tenabe, and Bob Malone. Having worked with both of these guys, I can say that they are true craftsmen. They know their art/business, and can make any trumpet play, and feel how the customer desires. They can take an ok horn, and make it feel like gold I'm wondering if technicians of this calibre exist elsewhere in the United States (or in Europe for that matter). People who don't just construct horns, but know how to alter the horn to really fit the player. I'd like to get some work done on my schilke picc for example, but don't think I could take it to Yamaha to get it done... Are there other people out there capable of this alchemy?
