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. "
