Private, personal playtesting.
Our new Chicago showroom offers impassioned brass musicians of all ages and abilities the opportunity to playtest our substantial range of instruments both personally and privately.
The appointment only system enables individuals interested in trying out any of our instruments to do so both at a date and time convenient to them, whilst avoiding the ‘elephant room syndrome’ often found at conferences and festivals where large groups of people are playing multiple instruments at any one time, making concentration difficult.
By booking an appointment in advance, and particularly relevant for our more specialized instruments, we can guarantee that the instrument you desire to test is in stock and available.
10% of the cost of the instrument back when you buy
Purchasing is available at the showroom, meaning that if you play test a horn you adore, you can take it away with you immediately.
For purchases made at our showroom, we’ll reimburse your travel expenses from the US up to 10% of the cost of your horn.

Accompaniments and recordings
Our state-of-the-art showroom features a bluetooth-enabled hybrid piano*, allowing you, not only the enjoyment and convenience of playing your own accompaniments and orchestral excerpts whilst play-testing our extensive range of instruments, but also the ability to record and playback your demonstrations.
*Please note that visitors wishing to take advantage of this feature are asked to bring their own bluetooth device.
