Finding you the best instruments available

Our Instruments
By working principally with professional performing wind artists, we are able to commit our resources to satisfying the exacting requirements of players in leading ensembles worldwide.  Our goal is to simplify the instrument acquisition process.  Despite the manufacturers' claims, no two wind instruments are exactly the same.  There are variations in materials, be it wood, rubber, composite or metal, and the hand-tooling processes introduce slight differences.

Our selection process allows us to be precise in picking out instruments that carry the attributes most valued by our clients - pitch, sonority, evenness and resistance, among others.  We pride ourselves on going through many instruments on a selection trip and bringing back only what satisfies our criteria.  Each instrument that meets our standards is carefully cataloged according to what makes it distinctive, and this information is used to assist our artist clients in their own personal selection processes.

Our consulting artists are what truly distinguish us as a wind instrument boutique. For instance, Mark Nuccio, our lead consultant for clarinet and Acting Principal Clarinetist of the Houston Symphony and Associate Principal and Solo Eb of the New York Philharmonic, is responsible for our exceptional reserve selection of Buffet Crampon & Cie. Bb, A and Eb clarinets.

Our consulting services are not just for instruments.  We also extend our selection standards to accessories

Specific Selections
In addition to the trips that we make to do selections for our own inventory, we also work on request.  If you are looking for a specific type of horn with specific characteristics let us know.  When we make the inventory trip, finding you your instrument will be on the top of our list. Give us a call for more information about our individualized selection services. Follow us on Facebook for up to date information on our searches.
