89 "ANTIGUA WINDS, INC." "5806 La Colonia, San Antonio, TX 78218. Tel: (210) 661-6505. Toll-free: (800) 661-6505. Fax: (210) 661-6702. Email: awi@antiguawinds.com. Web: www.antiguawinds.com.Antigua Winds provides high quality and extraordinary value flutes, clarinets, trumpets, and trombones all manufactured to meet the standards of today’s school music programs. Additionally, Antigua offers a full range of student to professional soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones. Artists worldwide have recognized quality, feel, and the uniquely pleasant sound of Antigua saxophones. Available Antigua accessories include Power Tone™ mutes for trumpet and trombone, as well as Antigua music and instrument stands. High quality and extraordinary value is the foundation on which Antigua Winds was formed. A relatively young company of 16 years, the Antigua brand has quickly become recognized for its high quality and value; and continues to gain acceptance in the school music and professional saxophone markets. The flagship of Antigua Winds is the PRO Power Bell Series of saxophones. Featuring an oversized bell and larger bow, combined with ribbed construction, the very best materials, and professional design features, these instruments provide a sound, feel, and look that professional players appreciate.Antigua student and advanced instruments are ideally suited for the school music market and the ‘working’ players. Drawing design features from professional level instruments, Antigua advanced models are excellent instruments for the serious student musician, who continues to perform periodically or the gigging musician requiring an instrument that performs at a professional level without costing a professional level price.Antigua student instruments are specifically designed with the beginning musician in mind. Years of contact and consultation with educators has resulted in a line of student instruments with ideal configurations, specifications, and materials to best contribute to the musical development of student musicians. Clearly more children would love to enjoy learning music. Often, the opportunity to learn music is cost-prohibitive. A recent influx of low-cost imported instruments attempts to address this cost need. However, a larger, more serious problem actually results from these instruments being introduced into the marketplace. Though these instruments address price and are within the reach of more students, enabling more to participate in school music programs; the quality of these instruments is completely unacceptable. To address this issue Antigua designed, developed, and introduced the Antigua XP Series of student band instruments. This series of instruments is held to the same high standards of quality as the Antigua products. Utilizing global resources, the best materials at the best cost are found in order to create the XP series. Implementing several design features from advanced instruments also significantly reduces production cost. Consequently, what Antigua XP gives you is the highest quality and highest value available in a student instrument. "

Armstrong woodwinds have been recognized as the leading choice for students and schools, Armstrong Heritage flutes are professional-level instruments that offer incredible performance and value.In 1931, William Teasdale Armstrong, a highly respected craftsman, founded his small flute repair shop in Elkhart, Indiana. Word of his skill and uncompromising commitment to quality quickly spread, and it wasn’t long before he was asked to manufacture complete instruments for professional musicians. The Armstrong legend was born.The proud Armstrong heritage passed on to son Edward, who apprenticed under his father and shared his father’s commitment to quality. But Edward’s concern for quality went well beyond the crafting of professional-level instruments. He recognized a need to provide quality instruments to a rapidly growing number of student and community musicians. As a result, many flutists begin their musical journey on Armstrong and, as they progress, many find than an Armstrong professional flute is the right model for their performing careers, as well.Strong research and development programs are the heart of Armstrong’s continued dedication to innovation. That dedication brought features like the first Headstart curved headjoint that has helped scores of very young flutists learn to play. Innovations like the Armstrong scale, new headjoint designs and more recently, development of the Classic series, also demonstrate Armstrong’s continuing commitment to innovation. Today, the Armstrong flute-makers continue to use their expertise to make modifications and new designs that improve the musical instruments they create.Armstrong enjoys a well-deserved worldwide reputation as “the most respected name in woodwinds.” Although the company has grown far larger than William T. Armstrong may have envisioned possible, his original guiding principles are still firmly in place: listen, question, design, test and continue to craft, with the skill of true artisans, the world’s finest woodwinds."

The word evokes feelings of shared spirit and beliefs, which is precisely the foundation upon which Artley Woodwinds was built. Donald D. Artley, born in 1892 in Middlebury, Indiana, spent much of his early career in the Elkhart music industry. Together with four family members, he began the Artley Manufacturing Company, for the purpose of supplying precision-quality flutes to a New York City firm. From there, the family-made Artley flute took on a life of its own.As news of the high-quality instruments spread, the company grew and was renamed D. and J. Artley, Inc. in 1953. Superior-quality instruments were developed using the same crafting techniques that the Artley family honed during their many years in the music business.After Donald Artley’s death in 1955, Richard W. Bosse, a loyal Artley employee, became president and general manager, vowing to carry on the tradition of excellence begun by the Artley men. In 1958, the company’s name was changed to Artley, Inc. In 1960, Artley concluded an agreement with C.G. Conn, Ltd., making C.G. Conn its exclusive distributor. It was during this time that the first Artley clarinets and double-reeds were developed. For over 30 years, Artley clarinets and double-reeds have helped young musicians learn to play with excellent intonation and control.In 1969, C.G. Conn purchased Artley. More recently, innovations in clarinets and double-reed design have enhanced the Artley name and Artley clarinets and double reeds are among the best for sound and reliability. New materials, new techniques, new performance features, all have made Artley a name of choice in woodwind instruments."

Web: www.conn-selmer.com.Elden Benge was only seven years old when he first fell in love with the trumpet a love that would turn into a life-long affair for the Winterset, Iowa native. It was also then that he adopted his first hero, the trumpeter of the hometown band. Young Elden persuaded his family to buy a trumpet for him, and he practiced religiously. He began playing professionally when he was 14 and, years later, assumed the role of First Trumpet with major symphony orchestras in Detroit and Chicago.As a gifted musician, Benge became increasingly dissatisfied with the range of tone available in ordinary mass-produced trumpets. He studied the technical and mechanical aspects of the trumpet in search of ways to improve its playing characteristics. Working with two craftsmen skilled in the construction of the trumpet, Benge began to fashion trumpets in the basement of his home.Through tireless experimentation, he finally developed his “dream trumpet,” an instrument with remarkable clarity, tonal range and easy response. Success was due to a combination of specially designed tapers, extremely precise machining tolerances, and special alloys. But the secret ingredient was meticulous attention to detail.In 1939 Benge sold his first custom-made trumpet to a fellow trumpeter in the Chicago Symphony. News of the marvelous Benge trumpet spread among professional players and what had begun as an artistic endeavor was soon a thriving business.Top trumpet players everywhere began to call on Benge to solve their performing problems. By 1952, the demand for the trumpet was so great that Benge retired from active performing so that he could devote all of his energies to his goal of producing the world’s finest trumpets.Benge’s instruments defined a new level of performance and quickly became the benchmark by which all others were judged. Designed to satisfy a variety of musical performance styles, Benge trumpets, cornets and trombones continue to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s artists.Such a desirable reputation is possible today through strict adherence to the same attention to detail set forth by Benge in his basement some 60 years ago. Benge upholds this tradition of fine craftsmanship and perfection to create instruments of timeless quality. "

Reeder, managing director.Blüthner and Haessler pianos are crafted by Juliüs Blüthner Pianofortefabrik. The company has been family owned and/or operated since 1853 and is internationally known for its production of highest-quality instruments. Six sizes of grand pianos and four sizes of vertical pianos are manufactured. Blüthner pianos have been favored by Franz Liszt, Claude Debussy, Peter Tschaikowsky, Arthur Rubinstein, and many other famous musicians and music lovers alike. Musicians praise the character of the sound with its famous romantic role.To celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2001, the company introduced the Blüthner Jubilee Edition (6’3”) featuring a new plate design reminiscent of the special edition of 1903. A left-handed piano was introduced in 2003, and in that same year a grand piano action with four pedals was invented. The fourth pedal activates the lift of the dampers, allowing them to drop back when the respective key is played. The remaining undraped strings produce harmonics that enrich the sound.The Haessler line of pianos made by Juliüs Blüthner consists of three sizes of grand pianos and three sizes of upright pianos. The international market will find a price advantage with the Haessler line, which meets Blüthner’s highest quality standard that has been maintained since 1853. These are truly remarkable sounding instruments.The Irmler-Europe line consists of mid-priced European grands and verticals in attractive styles and finishes. All are made to exacting specifications developed by Irmler Piano and reflect Irmler’s long history of piano making (established in 1818 in Leipzig, Germany). The Irmler Piano Company is owned by Dr. Christian and Knut Blüthner-Haessler. The pianos are constructed in Poland with German-made components and parts, with an engineering advantage from Blüthner Leipzig. All instruments are finalized in the Blüthner factory in Germany with extensive quality control.The Breitmann line includes two sizes of grand pianos B-16 5’4” and B-18 5’9” and four sizes of vertical pianos B-110 44”, B-120 46.5”, B-122 48.5”, and B-130 52”. Breitmann pianos, a division of the Irmler Piano Company, are constructed to exacting specifications by the company’s German engineering facility in Leipzig and with German-made components including pin block, strings, hammers, etc. This line of pianos represents the finest in Asian-made instruments for budget-minded buyers.Contact the Lansing, Michigan, office for more information."

Marcela Schramlova, President.The history of Bohemia piano began in 1871 in the town of Jihlava. In 1924 the company started its cooperation with a Viennese firm, Hofmann & Czerny (Austria). The factory’s modernization and assortment expansion continued until 1944, and in 1945 the company was converted to a state-owned corporation. In 1993 Bohemia Piano Ltd. bought the factory from the government and transformed it to a privately owned company again.The new owner has reinstituted the pre-war traditions and has successfully developed the new construction of all piano models in a very short time. With some 2,500 instruments produced annually, the company is one of the largest European manufacturers. The original confined factory space in Jihlava led to the addition of a factory in Hradec Králové for grand piano production. The hand-production of grand pianos is based on the cooperation between the designers and the company’s highly skilled piano builders, whose perfect workmanship and use of top-quality components result in the unique instruments sought after by professional performers, music schools, and concert halls. Each instrument is monitored on an ongoing basis, and the innovations are in accordance with the customer’s satisfaction. Bohemia Piano prides itself in producing the most innovative pianos in an otherwise predominantly conventional handicraft.Using the brand names Bohemia Piano and Hofmann & Czerny, the company produces a full range of upright pianos from size 43” to 52” and grand pianos from 4’11” to 8’11”.Bohemia pianos are preferred by players who enjoy the elegant and mellow European sound as well as the fine variety of cabinets in many different colors and veneers.A few years ago, C. Bechstein became a shareholder of Bohemia Piano s.r.o, Jihlava, and with their investment as well as the assistance of their technicians, the production increased. In April 2007 C. Bechstein bought the remaining shares and renamed the company C. Bechstein Europe s.r.o, Jihlava.

Conn, the oldest continuously active band instrument brand in America, literally gave birth to the U.S. band instrument manufacturing industry. Always committed to serving the needs of students, music educators, amateurs, and professionals, C.G. Conn’s storied history reflects a dedication for innovation and quest for the ultimate in design and craftsmanship an industry leader in musical performance.One Saturday night in 1873, Civil War veteran Charles Gerard Conn got involved in a brawl that resulted in a split lip. Not good news for a man who played cornet with the Elkhart, Indiana “Brick Brown Band.” In order to get around this problem, Colonel Conn set out to perfect a special rubber-cushioned mouthpiece so he could continue playing. The new mouthpiece, which he later patented, caught the eye of other musicians. He made a few for his friends, but soon there was such a demand for his mouthpieces that he rigged up a lathe from an old sewing machine and began turning them out as fast as possible.In 1875, a French musical instrument maker named Dupont stopped by the shop and asked if he might use Conn’s bench to repair some horns. After watching him work for several days, Conn decided that he, too, could make a horn. In that same year, in a closet-size shop only 20 feet square, Col. Conn produced the first American-built cornet.By 1879 the shop moved into larger quarters, and Conn began adding instruments to his line. In 1888, Colonel Conn brought 15 European instrument craftsmen to the United States and gave them the space, the tools and the incentive to make the finest instruments their skills would allow. Their expertise, teamed with the Colonel’s ingenuity and ambition, soon produced instruments so exceptional that they were accorded highest honors in the 1893 World’s Columbia Exposition in Chicago.Twice the Conn plant burned to the ground. Twice it was rebuilt, bigger and better than before. Famous bandmasters and musicians visited the plant and personally endorsed “Conn Wonder Instruments.” John Phillip Sousa, Patrick Gilmore, Herbert Clarke, Arthur Pryor, A. Liberati and others were frequent visitors.Vaudeville was at its peak, and the theaters and music halls of Elkhart saw a steady procession of the finest bands and musicians of the day. All played the Colonel’s instruments. Conn instruments ornate and often jeweled became world famous as Sousa and others toured Europe playing before kings, queens and czars.The Colonel also loved strange and bizarre instruments. In 1907 he built an Immensaphone, the largest horn in the world. It measured 12 feet in diameter and 35 feet long. The Conn factory also built the world’s largest drum, a slide tuba to make noises like a ship’s warning whistle, tenor tubas for the jackass role in Strauss’ Don Juan, and a saxophone for one-armed musician Al Miller.Since the first American cornet in 1875, C.G. Conn continued producing “firsts” throughout its distinguished history: the first American saxophone, first double-bell euphonium, first sousaphone (built to the great Sousa’s specifications), and a long list of many others. In 1915, Colonel Conn sold the C.G. Conn Company to C.D. Greenleaf. Greenleaf, almost clairvoyantly, realized a need for the advancement of instrumental music in the schools. His foresight and energy continued to add to Conn’s innovations. He was responsible for founding the first national school for band directors, first and only center for the study of musical acoustics, first successful short action valves, first all-electronic organ and first fiberglass sousaphones, among other legendary advancements.During World War II the Conn factory was completely converted to manufacture precision instruments for defense. Conn received four Army-Navy “E” Awards the first given in the band instrument industry. During the Korean War part of the facilities was converted to defense production, and Conn achieved another record in precision manufacturing.Many of today’s most preferred instruments owe their original success to Conn’s innovation. C.G. Conn French horns, for example, have been the horn of choice for the Hollywood film industry for most of the 20th Century. C.G. Conn Symphony Series trombones have a legendary place in the classical trombone world. Today’s best trumpet players are discovering the break-through performance with Vintage One trumpets. These innovative designs, enhanced by superior craftsmanship and technological breakthroughs, have provided today’s musicians with the superior instrument performance.Building on the proven designs of the past, C.G. Conn continues to meet the demands of today’s best musicians. As well, amateur and student musicians can enjoy the very best in instrument technology and performance with brass instruments and saxophones from C.G. Conn."

Web: www.ferreestools.com. Clifford Ferree, president.The company specializes in repair tools and supplies for band instrument repair technicians. Cliff Ferree has an excellent background in the repair field. After his graduation from the Conn Repair School in 1946, he established his own repair shop. This grew into a large retail business which was later sold due to the expansion of the tool business. In 1956 Ferree bought out the repair tool departments of both Conn and Leblanc. Using these tools as a nucleus, Ferree did some extensive redesigning and engineering and published his first complete catalog in 1957. The tool business moved to larger quarters in 1965, and in 1967 a large addition to that building was completed. In 1970, after becoming dissatisfied with foreign saxophone pads, Cliff Ferree designed several unique assembly machines, made complete sets of precision dies, and began manufacturing saxophone pads.Cliff Ferree attributes the rapid growth of his business to the fact that he was active in the repair field and realized the needs of other repair shops. The company is still constantly working on improvements and shorter steps to quicker, easier, and more efficient repair methods. This has resulted in the constant development of new tools. A person using these tools can complete difficult and complicated jobs more simply, accurately, and in much less time. All these special tools are precision made and quality controlled under the supervision of Steve Willbur and Curtis Ferree.The company was originally organized as Ferree’s Band Instrument Tools and Supplies, Inc., because Cliff Ferree thought that the name should symbolize the products. After 40 years, however, he felt that the “Ferree” name had become synonymous with quality band instrument repair tools and supplies and that customers would appreciate a shorter name; so the company name was changed to Ferree’s Tools, Inc.A large catalog is available free, upon request."

Musicians worldwide recognize the Stradivarius and Guarneri violins, products of 17th and 18th century Italian artisans. While the Italian schools have long since faded, the German tradition for craftsmanship continues in the Glaesel orchestral instruments. The German tradition traces its origins to Jacob Stainer. Until the early 19th century, when power and brilliance became the fashion in violin performance, Stainer’s instruments were more highly praised than Stradivari’s. One of his pupils, Matthias Klotz, became the first in a long line of luthiers. For the next 200 years members of the Klotz family refined and perfected their craft, contributing to the famous Mittenwald school.The Glaesel family story begins in 1720 during the lifetime of Stradivari and Matthias Klotz. Since that time no fewer than 48 descendants have followed the calling, including three currently active members of the family. This span of over 250 years exceeds the entire Italian Cremona tradition that produced Stradivari. While the family seat has always been in Markneukirchen, a center for instrument craftsmanship, generations of Glaesels have studied at the famous Mittenwald school. In addition to creating fine instruments, other members of the Glaesel family have received distinction for specializing in bows and instrument restoration.Kurt G. Glaesel (born 1926) studied at Mittenwald under the direction of Matthias Klotz (a direct descendant of the original). After working in a number of prominent shops in Holland, Switzerland, and Germany, he came to the United States in 1953. Here he established “shop adjusting,” the process by which imported instruments are assembled, finished, and tested for consistency and strict adherence to quality standards. Students greatly benefit from the availability of affordable instruments crafted in the old world tradition. Glaesel was even invited by MENC (Music Educators National Conference) to write their standards for acceptable student instruments.Glaesel models are now focused on the traditional European instruments. Glaesel student and step-up models are known for their appeal to many different levels of musicianship. The level of craftsmanship is exquisite and teachers moving their students up into traditionally-sourced instruments will find that Glaesel models are an easy choice."
