I started this site in 2018 due to my growing involvement in researching the history of brass instruments. It used to be an offshoot of my railroad history site but I decided it was too important for that. New information is always being added as I add to my collection and knowledge. Enjoy the trip and I look forward to hearing from you.

I have owned hundreds of instruments over the last thirty years, but only a few have remained in my collection. Here they are in 2022. The list can be found in my "Museum" section with an * by each one currently owned. Only one has been added since this photo, a 1942 Conn NY Symphony Special trumpet.
