Web: www.nemc.com.NEMC offers music merchants a unique no-fee turn-key rental program that removes the dealer’s operational burdens yet enables the dealer to offer a customized, high-quality, profitable rental program with no capital investment in inventory. The NEMC Rental Program removes from the dealer the steep capital requirements, high operation costs, extensive service and repair responsibilities, and the complicated, intense legal requirements of offering rental contracts to the public. Under the NEMC program a dealer receives an inventory of new and like-new name-brand instruments complete with accessories, ready for rental. NEMC supplies an inventory based on the size of the dealer’s rental program, and additional inventory is sent throughout the year as the dealer needs it, all at NEMC’s expense. If a new dealer already has rental inventory, NEMC will purchase it from the dealer as it is rented to a customer, thus freeing up cash for the dealer. Each instrument’s rental documents are customized for each affiliate according to the often strict laws and requirements of their respective state or territory. NEMC also works with the dealer to create a custom, competitive, and profitable price schedule for the affiliate’s individual marketplace.NEMC maintains one of the largest staffs of skilled repair technicians dedicated only to rental instrument service. Free hands-on instrument repair training is available to all affiliates in NEMC’s New Jersey repair center with one-on-one private instruction.Motivational mailings to parents and students on behalf of the affiliate, the billing and collecting of rental payments and delinquent accounts, along with the Platinum Plan Plus to increase commission percentage and the Annual Rental Bonus Plan for cash bonuses all add to the rental program of choice for discerning dealers nationwide. “Often imitated, never duplicated.”"

Intellitouch: The Lifetime Tuner.™ The CenterPitch™ Universal Model CP2, $34.95, brand new for 2003, is a marvel of engineering with its tiny dual ball-and-socket clamp design that attaches easily to instrument bells and pipes of any size, as well to the violin family instruments. The one-handed, easy on-easy off design teaches beginners of brass, woodwind and bowed stringed instrument to learn how to hear intonation in noisy environments such as band halls, stages and practice rooms, as well as helps professionals to unobtrusively and quickly tune up their instruments prior to performance without interference from other instruments, and without the inconvenience of needing microphones or wire attachments. CenterPitch: its Freedom.The Beatnik Rhythmic Analyzer™ is the first new idea in musical timing practice since the metronome 200 years ago. For drummers of all levels who want to improve their timing and rhythmic accuracy, Beatnik’s interactive visual timing and rhythmic feedback is a totally new concept in timing and rhythmic practice. It is smartly designed, totally user-friendly, and the feedback is so fun and engaging that drummers just can’t stop playing on it. Most importantly, the results are amazing. It’s wild how you can feel yourself getting better faster with Beatnik’s visual feedback. Plus, you’ll have the hard scores to prove it. Beatnik: The Future of Time."

Web: www.sagamusic.com, Richard L. Keldsen, president. “Saga, The Source” accurately describes this company. Founded in 1974, Saga revolutionized the music trades as the first large-scale manufacturer and importer of high-quality banjos, mandolins, and guitars. The company has also grown to become one of the world’s leading suppliers of bowed and fretted instruments, as well as by supporting its instrument product lines with bags, cases, and other related parts and accessories. Saga’s representatives have traveled throughout the world often to obscure, remote destinations in search of skilled proven manufacturing sources to meet the company’s quality requirements and supply demands. Many members of Saga’s international staff come from the ranks of various string ensembles and bands. Their first- hand experience, years of traditional musical education, and keen working knowledge of string and fretted instruments, enable them to provide the best service possible and to contribute to the design specifications and construction of Saga’s instrument lines. Focusing initially on the Bluegrass, Old-Time Traditional, and Folk Music markets, Saga has successfully established itself as an internationally known company and continues to develop and market highly successful, quality- made, competitively priced products, appealing to Saga’s original markets as well as to the traditional School Music and Suzuki markets. With 2007 marking the company’s 26th year as a pioneer in the growing market of orchestral string instruments, Saga continually raises the bar for expectations of what a superb hand- carved, solid-wood instrument at very accessible prices should be by leading the way with such brands as Cremona, Anton Breton, H. Siegler, F. Cervini, H. Siegler, and J. LaSalle all favorites with knowledgeable teachers and dealers everywhere. Saga is also the premier source for popular fretted instrument brands like the original Saga banjos, banjo kits, Saga electric guitar and bass kits, a full line of Mahalo ukuleles, Legendary Gold Star banjos, America’s favorite Kentucky mandolins, Trinity College guitars, Celtic-style mandolins and concertinas, Regal resophonic wood- body and metal-body Duolian and Tricone-style guitars, J. Navarro Spanish-inspired clasical guitars, Valencia student classical guitars, Durango Vintage Series steel-string guitars, Gitane Gypsy-Jazz guitars featuring signature instruments for some of today’s hottest players (like John Jorgenson, Lulo Reinhardt, and Stephane Wrembel, Jan Akkerman and Dorado Schmidt to name a few,) and the world renowned line of Blueridge guitars, supported by legendary musicians in the fields of Bluegrass and mainstream popular music throughout the world. Saga’s bowed and fretted instrument brands are supported by a wide selection of high-quality parts and accessories with names line Superior, Golden Gate, Boulder, and TraveLite cases. "

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."

Bechstein firm was established in 1853 by Carl Bechstein in Berlin. Since that time Bechstein pianos have been manufactured by Germany’s finest craftsmen and played by the world’s great pianists. Through the quality of its grand pianos, Bechstein acquired a name famous throughout the world for its superior performance.Today Bechstein upright and grand pianos are to be found in some of the finest homes and most prestigious concert halls in the world.In addition to modern grand cabinets in standard ebony and mahogany polish, Bechstein has introduced a number of exotic woods and finishes, including Vavona polish (a member of the fir family appearing much like birds-eye maple), Moabi polish, Burl walnut polish, Madrone polish, and Bubinga polish. These exotic finishes are especially attractive in “classic” cabinets with rounded/fluted legs and specially carved music racks and lyres. Another particularly beautiful piano in several models is the mahogany polish with many inlaid patterns. Many other satin woods are available.In 1999 Bechstein introduced the new generation of professional C. Bechstein grand pianos completely new scale designs that will meet the taste and requirements of the most demanding pianists worldwide. The new concert grand D-280 is the flagship and is joined in the C. Bechstein lineup by the C-234, B-212, M/P-192, and L167.C. Bechstein has introduced a new academy line of instruments made in Germany under the marque of Bechstein. These pianos are designed to compete in design and price point with other premium pianos from Europe and the United States. They are available in 160cm, 190cm, 208cm, and 228cm sizes. The smaller sizes will make them the ideal piano for the finest American homes and educational institutions where size is an issue.The ProBechstein series of classic upright models includes the Balance, Avance, Ars Nova, and Concert Eight. These vertical models combine outstanding appearance with superior touch and tone. In January of 2007, Bechstein began distributing its products in North America through Bechstein-America, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of C Bechstein Pianofortefabrik.AG., Germany, and in May of 2007, C Bechstein Pianofortefabrik AG purchased the controlling interest in the Bohemia piano factory located in the Czech Republic where it now builds the W. Hoffmann line of grand and vertical pianos."

1,786 WALTER PIANO CO. "25416 County Route 6, Elkhart, IN 46514. Tels: (574) 266-0615 and (574) 674-9486. Fax: (574) 266-0889. Charles R. Walter, president and general manager.In 1970 Charles R. Walter, who had played a major role in the work done at Conn, purchased this piano company. His intention from the very start was to combine technological advances with his own extensive engineering background and mechanical ability to produce the finest quality pianos in the market. Upon taking control, he immediately cut back production to ensure careful attention to detail and to quality standards. The company’s growth since that time has been specifically directed toward improving and maintaining quality. Walter Piano Co. is a family owned and operated company.Being an instrument of real musical expression, the piano must also be an instrument of exceptional beauty, expressive of the aesthetic values of the home in which it is placed. The Walter piano designers pay particular attention to both traditional styling and the best furniture trends. Expert design is then combined with careful and painstaking craftsmanship to produce pianos with beauty characteristic of the finest home furnishings.The results of these efforts are the Charles R. Walter Studio Console and Studio pianos. Charles Walter has given these pianos his own name as the Signature of Quality in order to emphasize his personal interest in assuring and maintaining the highest quality in design and in production standards. These pianos, introduced in the summer of 1975, are acclaimed to be among the finest-quality vertical pianos on the market today. The 43” console and the 45” studio are noted for the 48” Ao speaking length, 56”x 37” (14.5 square feet) solid Sitka Spruce soundboard, full-size studio direct blow action, and the W-48 scale, designed to incorporate the best in harmonicity characteristics.Other features that point to the quality of this piano include the cross-banded and laminated 29-ply Delignit pin block, five solid Sitka Spruce back posts (2”x3”), back construction to meet school specifications, and five-ply lumber core construction throughout.The 6’4” Walter Grand Piano was added to the company’s piano line in 1996. The piano features a Renner action, Kluge keys, and an all-hard-maple rim and frame construction. It is available traditionally styled in ebony, mahogany, cherry, oak, and walnut finishes. A Chippendale-style is available in cherry and mahogany. The grands are handcrafted instruments with direct production oversight and involvement by Walter family members. Custom features make construction of the Walter Grand similar to the methods used in restoring fine instruments of vintage quality."

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. "

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."

They are made of all leather, leather trim, and all cordura for all kinds of musical instruments, especially brasswinds and woodwinds. Most Gard bags can be carried in the hand, over the shoulder and as a backpack.Recently Talwar came out with a mid bag suspension system (patent pending). In ordinary bags the music instrument rests on the bottom of the gig bag. In Gard bags with the mid bag suspension system the music instrument is suspended in mid air inside the gig bag, without touching any of the inside walls of the gig bag. The mid bag suspension system provides possibly better protection than any other gig bag or hard case.Gard Wheelies or Trolley Gig Bags: Similar to the very popular pull-behind luggage, these bags will prove a delight for the doubler or any players wanting to remove the weight of their horns from their back or shoulders.

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. Bohemia Piano America, Inc. remains the distributor for North America with their representative, German American Trading. "

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."
294 "C.G. CONN, 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. C.G. 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."

Clair Omar Musser (b. 10/14/01 d. 11/7/98) was in 5th grade Lincoln School, (PA) with his violin for his Christmas program. A prominent school director, Mr. Ammon Bucher had just purchased an Edison phonograph and loaned the instrument to the program. His (five) “cylinder recordings” featured violin selections, Enrico Caruso, Christmas music and his last number was announced as “The United States Marine Band” featuring Thomas Mills playing “Four Little Black Berries” (solo) on the Xylophone. Young Musser was awestruck, as the audience requested that it be repeated.Musser switched instruments and studied with several prominent xylophone and marimba teachers at the time, including Philip Rosenweig, and had toured as a virtuoso in the United States, Canada and Europe. In 1930, Musser soloed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Frederick Stock. It was through this affair that Musser succeeded in arranging for a 100 piece Marimba Symphony Orchestra to perform at the Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago. Musser trained the entire orchestra, arranged the music and conducted the concert. For the next thirty years, Musser organized a large number of “marimba symphony orchestras” which toured the United States and Europe. From 1942 to 1952, Musser taught at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. His innovative designs for a variety of mallet keyboard instruments found their way into production and distribution through his own company, which he started in 1948. The next decade saw tremendous growth in popularity of Musser mallet instruments as they became known as the standard for tuning and for defining the quintessential sounds for mallet instruments.In 1966, the Musser Marimba Company joined the Ludwig Drum Company, making the combined entity, Ludwig/Musser, a total percussion force. Claire Musser passed away in 1998, leaving a legacy of unique skills that brought the marimba and other keyboard mallet instruments to the forefront of modern percussion.Musser mallet instruments are well-known for their accuracy of pitch and integrity of tone. The results of Musser’s unique tuning process are well-known by percussionists around the world. As mallet instruments grew in importance on the marching field, Musser led the charge in developing a unique Kelon material that allowed the superior Musser tone to be translated to materials impervious to weather.Today, Musser instruments are seen and heard throughout the world being played by leading jazz artists, in professional symphonies and on the outdoor marching field. Known for their high level of tonal excellence, Musser marimbas, vibraphones and xylophones set the musical standard for excellence."
689 "HOLTON, 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. Frank Holton was a professional trombonist with the famous Sousa band and associate of the leading musicians of the late 19th century. He was a business manager and trombone soloist; a theatre musician and entrepreneur. The legacy of Frank Holton continues to this day, over 100 years later, focusing on providing musicians with the finest tools on which to perform their craft.Holton began his company in 1896 in Chicago, after numerous engagements as a trombonist in many leading performing groups. As a former member of Sousa’s great band, and an associate and friend of trombonist Arthur Pryor and cornetist Herbert L. Clarke, Holton enjoyed wide renown. At forty year’s of age, Frank Holton created his own recipe for trombone slide oil. He soon took on the sale of used band instruments. H.A. Vander Cook (who later started the Vander Cook School of Music) stated that, “The present factory is the result of his perseverance and his making ‘one good tone at a time,’ which method he applied to overcome the obstacles as they arose before him.”Holton’s contacts and friendships made in his professional musician days served him well during these years. Many of his friends in the theatre and dance band circuits had made their way to top symphony jobs, bringing their Holton instruments to Boston, New York, Philadelphia and other highly respected orchestras. One interesting note is that the first trumpet player with the Boston Symphony, Vincent Bach, used and endorsed the Holton trumpet at that time.In 1917, Holton had completed tooling for a complete line of saxophones, in order to meet with the saxophone craze that was just beginning. His factory, though, was at capacity and needed to grow. One of his early customers and friend suggested that Holton combine his love of Wisconsin farms with his work and set up a new factory in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. The citizens of Elkhorn built him a factory of over 35,000 square feet and, while bringing in or training a workforce proved difficult, the first profits for the Wisconsin-based company showed themselves in 1920. The organization of school bands and the promise of “a playing band within twelve weeks,” brought Holton good sales results, but this growth in student instrument demand was not a good fit for the higher-priced professional instruments that Holton was producing. The company introduced lower-priced outsourced instruments under such names as Pertin and Beaufort until it could introduce its own “Collegiate” line in the early 1930’s. Mr. Holton retired at age 82 and sold his controlling shares to longtime associate, William Kull. Frank Holton died on April 16, 1942.Kull remained the CEO until his death in 1944, but the Frank Holton Company was essentially run by the sales manager, Elliott Kehl, a long-time Holton employee. Kehl found war work to keep the factory open during a time when all brass was directed to the war effort. Over the next several years, Kehl was allowed to purchase a majority share in the company as he led a program of re-engineering and improving the line of instruments. Kehl also revived work with key artists, including Phillip Farkas, first horn player of the Chicago Symphony. In 1956, the Holton Farkas model French horn was introduced to great acclaim. That same year, new tooling for saxophones brought Holton into the modern saxophone world.In 1962, the decision to sell the Frank Holton Company to the G. Leblanc Corporation was made. G. Leblanc brought its strength in woodwind instruments together with Holton brass expertise, creating a much more formidable competitor in the band instrument industry.Through the remainder of the century, Holton continued to produce student and professional brass instruments. Its work with international star Maynard Ferguson and his “Superbone” continued Frank Holton’s commitment to working with the finest artists. Development with key educators such as Chicago’s Ethel Merker keeps Holton French horn development moving even beyond what Phillip Farkas has envisioned. Efforts to help young people progress included the introduction of a child-size single horn.In 2005, the company introduced the new Holton Collegiate line of low brass instruments. Like its predecessor in the 1930’s, this high-quality, lower-priced instrument line provides the ideal combination of performance and value for school music programs.The second century of Holton continues to be written, however, the purchase of Leblanc and Holton by Steinway Musical Instruments bodes well for the company. Working with key artists, serving amateur musicians, and developing exciting new opportunities were key to Frank Holton’s vision. Now as part of Steinway Musical Instruments and its band and orchestra division, Conn-Selmer, Inc., Holton instruments continue to excite the musical mind and provide today’s musicians with the finest instruments on which to experience the joy of music."

JWilliam Lewis (1835-1902) achieved initial recognition as a professional violinist and teacher in Chicago. One of his foremost students was Maud Powell, one of the first American-born concert violinists who was also a student of famed French violinist and teacher Charles Dancla. In 1870 William joined the Root-Cady Music Company. Concerned by the lack of quality instruments and service for his students and colleagues, William formed the Chicago Music Company in 1874 with his partners Newell and Gibbs. Located in the heart of the Chicago business district, players from the finest symphony orchestras in the world would often visit Lewis’ shop to have their own instruments appraised or serviced. Amati, Guarneri, and Stradivarius were commonly in inventory. He later renamed the business Wm. Lewis Company (1886) and Wm. Lewis & Son (1896). Fred Lewis succeeded his father as president of the company. Many current players and teachers played Lewis instruments earlier in their careers and are loath to give them up except to the most deserving of their own students. Today, instruments from the Wm. Lewis & Son workshop represent the finest instruments in the Conn-Selmer string line. Combining high performance with high value, Lewis instruments are hand-finished and finely adjusted to provide the best performance experience for advancing players."

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."

Scherl & Roth string instruments continue the rich legacy that began with a long line of respected German craftsmen. It was such a craftsman, with his eye on America, who laid the foundation for one of the most respected names in stringed instruments.Heinrich Roth was a seventh-generation violinmaker who worked with his father, Ernst Heinrich Roth, and his brother, Albert, in the family shop in Markneukirchen, Germany. Through the early 20th Century, the family had built a reputation for making fine string instruments and sold many to visiting Americans. In 1922, Heinrich was persuaded by his American customers and friends to come to the United States, bringing the experience and reputation of Roth instruments with him.After a few brief jobs in violin departments of other companies, Roth’s expertise led him to manage the Simson & Frey violin department, where his reputation grew throughout the United States and abroad. In 1932, upon the retirement of Herman Simsom, Roth teamed with Max Scherl to buy the Simson & Frey firm. They renamed it Scherl & Roth. In 1938, the company moved from New York to Cleveland, Ohio. After World War II, interest in string instruments bloomed as educators recognized the importance of developing school orchestra. Aiming to provide students with the finest instruments possible, Roth brought young, skilled violinmakers from Europe to his Cleveland violin shop. Under Roth’s guidance, these craftsmen established the finishing and adjusting techniques and standards to provide fine, affordable school instruments in large quantities. Those standards later became the basis for those adopted by Music Educator’s National Conference. It wasn’t long before Scherl & Roth became one of the largest string shops in the world as well as the nation’s largest supplier of string instruments and accessories. The entire Scherl & Roth line became recognized as the preferred choice of many leading educators.Today, Scherl & Roth is the traditional leader in beginning student instruments, having established the shop adjustment process over fifty years ago. The bodice selection and adjustment process creates a more forgiving instrument and lends itself to getting students off to a good start. Highly appropriate for beginning rental inventory, dealers and educators appreciate the long term value of having Scherl & Roth instruments to pass from one beginning class to another. Scherl & Roth instruments display the same standards Heinrich Roth brought over from Germany. The instruments remain a favorite of educators and students for their sound and construction, qualities honed and passed down through many generations."

Since 1918, Selmer USA woodwind instruments have been the leading choice of band directors for students and schools. Complementing the Selmer (Paris) offering of professional saxophones, clarinets and trumpets, Selmer USA instruments include high-quality flutes, clarinet, double reeds and saxophones at various price points. In 1918 Alexandre Selmer of the Paris firm awarded George Bundy the rights to distribute Selmer products in the United States. Having a strong position in the professional clarinet market, Bundy next set his sights on flutes. In 1920 Bundy hired George W. Haynes, the first in a family famous for flute making, to design the Selmer flute. Louis Lot flutes became the rage with professionals in the late 1920s. Selmer responded by offering a copy of a Louis Lot owned by Charles Selmer (first flutist with the Opera Comique and the Concerts Colonne Orchestras). To cement Selmer’s position in flutes, Bundy brought a young flute craftsman named Kurt Gemeinhardt to the United States from Markneukirchen, Germany. Bundy recognized the need to leave New York City in order to expand his manufacturing operations. By the 1920s Elkhart, Indiana, had established a reputation as the band instrument capital. Drawing on a skilled labor pool, the company was moved to Elkhart. American industry in the 1940s prospered from advancements in efficient and economical production methods and the newly developed field of plastics. Selmer combined these factors in 1948 to produce one of the first commercially successful molded clarinets the Bundy Resonite® model 1400. The 1400 was patterned after the famous Selmer (Paris) BT clarinet, used by such great artists as Benny Goodman. The Bundy Resonite clarinet launched a revolution in affordable, high quality musical instruments and established Selmer as an industry leader. The 1400 passed the one million-units-sold milestone in 1978 and continued to launch musical careers.The band instrument industry grew rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s as demand increased due to a “baby boom” in the number of school age children and the proliferation of school music programs throughout the United States. Selmer seized the opportunity to reinforce its position as an industry leader by skillful acquisitions including Vincent Bach Corporation (1961), Buescher Band Instrument Company (1963), Brilhart mouthpieces (1966), Lesher double reed instruments (1967), Glaesel String Instrument Service (1977), Ludwig Drum Company (1981), and Wm. Lewis & Son (1995). In 2002 The Selmer Company and C.G. Conn merged to form Conn-Selmer, Inc. and the Selmer name returned to its roots as the brand leader in woodwind instruments and close association with its Selmer (Paris) cousin. With new models for professional, student and amateur players, Selmer continues to grow in its position as the first name in woodwinds."

The history of Vito band instruments, 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 later operated 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, then traveled with them to Europe. 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.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 2004 Leblanc was acquired by Conn-Selmer, Inc. a division of Steinway Musical Instruments (NYSE:LVB). The Vito line of student instruments expanded to include student flutes, clarinets, oboes, trumpets and trombones. "

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 original Martin band instrument plant was established in Chicago prior to 1871 and could have become America’s oldest band instrument company, had it not been for one of the many fires that claimed much of the city at that time. In 1876, after a fire completely wiped out Henry Martin’s business, it is said that he walked the entire distance to Elkhart, Indiana, where he joined an instrument company just being formed by C.G. Conn as its sixth employee. Henry retired from C.G. Conn in 1902 and died in 1920. However, in 1907, Henry Martin’s five sons, who had learned the art of building instruments from their father, established the new Martin Band Instrument Company. Martin instruments were truly a cottage industry, with each brother building instruments in their homes during the early years. It wasn’t until 1910 when the Martin factory opened its doors in Elkhart. Through the years, Martin built a reputation for outstanding quality wherever its instruments were sold. In 1928 Martin acquired The Indiana Band Instrument Company, giving Martin a lower priced student line for this growing market.One of the most famous Martin instruments, the Martin Committee trumpet, earned its name by being designed by a committee of trumpet experts in the 1930’s. It dominated the jazz trumpet market from the late 1940s. Committee trumpets were played by Miles Davis throughout his career, as well as Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Maynard Ferguson, and Al Hirt. In 1962 Martin was acquired by Richards Music Corporation. RMC was absorbed by Wurlitzer Corporation in 1965. Production at the Elkhart plant ceased in 1968. The brand was later sold to the G. Leblanc company and manufacturing moved to Kenosha, Wisconsin in 1971. It was during this time that renowned trombonist Urbie Green worked with Leblanc engineers to create the Martin Urbie Green trombone.With the sale of Leblanc to Conn-Selmer, Inc. in 2004, Martin instruments have joined the growing number of legendary brands under the Conn-Selmer banner. Martin now enters its second century with a renewed commitment to provide the highest level of professional craftsmanship to these classic instruments."

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.

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."
