A Busy Day of Repairs!

BrassWindFix have had a busy day of woodwind musical instrument repairs today.  First there was a set-up on a Selmer Prelude student alto saxophone for a customer in Portishead.  Then we serviced a Yamaha YFL211 flute for a customer in Congresbury – these instruments are still regarded as the best student flute on the market and we would certainly endorse this.  If these flutes are serviced regularly they will carry on almost indefinitely providing many years of music-making.  Finally we worked on a Bundy tenor saxophone which needed a basic service to put it into playing order.  This was for a regular customer from the City of Wells.

Just an average day in the BrassWindFix workshop in Wrington, between Bristol and Weston-super-Mare.

Kenny Ball Dies Aged 82

BrassWindFix were sad to hear the news today that the great jazz trumpeter Kenny Ball has passed away.  He had great success with his band Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen including the hit (I Love You) Samantha in 1961, and the ever popular Midnight In Moscow.  He performed with many artists including Acker Bilk and Chris barber, supported Louis Armstrong and also appeared with Morecambe  and Wise on several occasions.

He bought jazz to the masses during the 1960’s and is regarded as spearheading the Trad Jazz Boom.  He will be greatly missed, but leaves a huge musical legacy.
