815 "KING, a division of Conn-Selmer, Inc." "P.O. Box 310, Elkhart IN 46515-0310. Tel: (574) 522-1675. Fax: (574) 295-0334. Email: custserv@conn-selmer.com. Web: www.conn-selmer.com. The King tradition of excellence goes back to 1893, when Sunday concerts in the park were plentiful and the blare of trumpets in minstrel bands sent shivers down the spine of anyone within hearing distance. Music was appreciated in America, but to some, it was more than just a walk in the park.As a young man, Henderson N. White loved music and theater. He ran an instrument repair shop in Cleveland, Ohio, and became friends with the musicians in the city. One of the finest musicians was Thomas King, a solo trombonist with the Lyceum Theatre Orchestra. He urged White to design a new trombone and offered to help. The two men collaborated, White providing his mechanical skill, King contributing his experience as an artist. They tried their ideas, tested them over a period of months, and finally produced a trombone with a vastly improved slide action and superb tonal quality. White named it the “King” trombone, after his friend. It was an immediate success in Cleveland and soon became one of the most popular trombones in the country.White followed his trombone success by designing and patenting a new silver cornet, which also won almost instant acceptance. Then came King trumpets, French horns, baritones and double-bell euphoniums.And so the company began. It started because its young founder felt that every fine artist deserves the best possible instrument. The company’s continuing developmental work has been motivated by this same commitment ever since.During the early years, White worked at the benches along with his employees to learn the causes of imperfections in band instruments... his own included. He insisted that every flaw be corrected. He even sponsored a 12-piece band that played at the factory three times a week not only for the enjoyment of his people but also as a continuing test of his instruments. He listened critically, and many improvements resulted from these concerts and discussions with the musicians afterward.This dedication to perfection and craftsmanship built the company steadily and solidly. King instruments were introduced to the public only when they offered superior advantages. H.N. White pioneered the use of Sterling silver in making bells for cornets, trumpets and trombones. This resulted in a richer sound with more overtones and greater carrying power than conventional bells.By the time of Henderson White’s death in 1940, he had designed and developed 28 instruments, including a complete line of low brass instruments which provided the player both musical superiority and long-lasting construction. The business was carried on for the next 25 years under the direction of Mrs. Henderson White.In 1964, 12-1/2 acres of land in Eastlake, Ohio, became the site for a new plant and the reputation of King musical instruments grew, as band directors discovered the educational superiority of King instrument design. When Mrs. White retired in 1965, the company was sold to a group of investors who expressed their sincere intentions to carry on the ideals and philosophies of the White family.The expansion program continued, and it was determined that the company could attain even greater growth through an association with a larger organization. In January of 1966, the company was merged with The Seeburg Corporation, a major manufacturer in the electronic entertainment industry. At the completion of this merger, the name was changed from the H. N. White Company to King Musical Instruments and, for a short period, ownership changed once again. King is currently owned by Conn-Selmer, Inc., a division of Steinway Musical Instruments, Inc.Over the years, many famous professionals have endorsed King instruments. Tommy Dorsey used a King trombone throughout his career. His brother, Jimmy, also played King instruments. Others include “Dizzy” Gillespie, William Bell, Ray Anthony, Vaughn Monroe, Johnny “Scat” Davis, Harry James, Nat Adderley, Kai Winding, Yusef Lateef, Cannonball Adderley and Mel Davis. Today’s best musicians and finest bands insist on the quality and performance of King musical instruments. Today, King legend continues its strong voice in musical performance"

The story of Leblanc’s inception and ultimate growth is one of the most captivating and well known in the music industry-the stuff of which, as the saying goes, legends are made.Since its modest beginnings in America as a two-man shop, Leblanc grew to a position of international prominence under the leadership of its cofounders, Léon Leblanc (1900-2000) and Vito Pascucci (1922-2003). Leblanc instruments continue to be crafted in Kenosha, Wisconsin and La Couture-Boussey, France.Leblanc in America traces its origins to the founding of Ets. D. Noblet of France in 1750, when the great flourishing of instrumental music at the court of Louis XV created a demand for musical instruments of all kinds. More than any other instrument manufacturer, Noblet refined and developed early woodwind manufacturing techniques, securing for the French nation its preeminent reputation for producing the best wind instruments in the world. Based in La Couture-Boussey for two and a half centuries, it is among the oldest continuously operating companies in France.In 1904, having no heirs, the Noblet family passed its holdings to Georges Leblanc, descendant of a long line of distinguished French instrument makers. By the time he acquired Noblet, Georges Leblanc had gained a reputation as one of the finest woodwind makers in France. The workshop at the Leblanc headquarters in Paris became a meeting place of the great woodwind artists of the era. The subsequent growth and success of G. Leblanc Cie. as a manufacturing entity was largely due to the work of Léon Leblanc, who in addition to his reputation as an instrument maker and businessman, was also a gifted clarinetist, holder of the first prize of the Paris Conservatoire, the first and only instrument maker to have held such an honor.As Léon Leblanc once noted, “Musicians of today should not be handicapped by the deficiencies of those before me. Acoustical, mechanical and musical improvements will be made. To this end, I have dedicated my life.” Monsieur Leblanc served as chairman of the American company and président honoraire of the French firm until his death in 2000 at the age of 99.The history of Leblanc in Kenosha, Wisconsin, dates to the last months of World War II and a chance meeting between Léon Leblanc and Vito Pascucci.Born in Kenosha, Vito Pascucci showed a marked interest in music and played cornet in the Kenosha High School band. He became fascinated with the construction and design of musical instruments and learned their repair as a summer apprentice at the Frank Holton Company, and then, while still in high school, augmented his family’s income by operating an instrument-repair shop at his brother’s music store.In 1943, Pascucci was called into the armed forces. His instrument-repair skills were rewarded when he was assigned as a trumpeter and repairman to Army Field Bands, then to the Army Air Corps Band, led by Glenn Miller. He began with the Miller band in New Haven, Connecticut, and then traveled with them to Europe. Stationed in England, Pascucci and Miller formed plans to set up a chain of music stores after the war.Miller’s untimely death put an end to those plans, but when the band was sent to newly liberated France, Vito paid a visit to G. Leblanc Cie., and his guide that day was Léon Leblanc. After service discharge in 1946, Pascucci returned to Kenosha, where Mr. Leblanc asked him to establish a foothold for the French company in America.A shop for the purpose of disassembling, climatizing and reassembling wood instruments was set up as part of the new firm. After shipment to America by sea (and later by air), the wood was allowed to stabilize under the new atmospheric conditions, and the instruments were restored to original factory specifications, reassembled, adjusted and thoroughly tested.In the 1950s, due to an ever-growing school market, demand for Leblanc instruments in the United States was far greater than the French concern could meet, so Leblanc began producing plastic-bodied clarinets in Kenosha.The Vito line of musical instruments was thus born, thrusting Leblanc to the forefront of the student clarinet market. In 1951, construction of Leblanc’s Kenosha factory was completed, a plant that to this day provides a model for the industry in its modern equipment, efficient operation and attractive appearance. Ever-increasing production called for the factory’s subsequent expansion in 1953, 1960 and 1966 and 1999.In April 1989, Leblanc USA acquired majority interest in the esteemed French firm and assumed responsibility for its management. In 2004, Leblanc was acquired by Conn-Selmer, Inc. a division of Steinway Musical Instruments (NYSE:LVB). Today, Leblanc clarinets are achieving even greater prominence through its new Leblanc by Backun professional instruments. The association of Leblanc and famed instrument designer, Morrie Backun has provided for a superior combination of acoustical and mechanical expertise rarely found in the music industry. Artist like Ricardo Morales, Eddie Daniels, Julian Bliss and host of others continue to perfect their performances with instrument from Leblanc."
