Customising an instrument

Before and After Harrelson Trumpet

This Harrelson Bravura Trumpet was brought into the workshop by local Bristol Jazz Musician Andy Hague last week as he heard that BrassWindFix were experts at customising an instrument.

Andy wanted a different bell fitted as he wanted the instrument to create a different sound.  The replacement bell was ordered and made in the USA by Harrelson and finally arrived last week after many weeks of patient waiting by Andy!

On receipt Andy couldn’t wait to get it into the workshop and it was immediately driven to BrassWindFix for the new bell to be fitted.  The original bell was removed and Justin refitted and soldered on the replacement bell.
Andy was really thrilled with the end result and we look forward to hearing the new sound!  If you haven’t heard Andy Hague yet – you are in for a treat as he is appearing in Bristol with the Andy Hague Big Band on 9th October!
