Woodwind & Brass Spares

BWF-SparesBrassWindFix have recently been organising and cataloguing our extensive range of spare parts for Woodwind & Brass musical instruments.  As a specialist workshop catering for all aspects of woodwind & brass repair, it is essential we have a large selection of spare parts in stock, so they are readily available whenever we need them to complete a repair.  Brass instruments regularly need replacement valve springs, valve felts, valve guides, waterkey springs, waterkey corks, trigger springs, rotary valve bumpers, rotary valve string/cord and trombone slide bow bumpers.  Woodwind instruments routinely require replacement pads (skin pads, leather pads, cork pads), key corks, key felts, springs, tenon corks, saxophone crook corks, saxophone neck receiver screws & flute headjoint corks.  We even carry replacement mute corks in stock!  Occasionally, when unusual or rare parts are required which are not normally stocked, we can usually source these within a very short timescale.

Brassed Off!

brass bandThis weekend (9th/10th March 2013) sees the annual West of England Regional Brass Band Contest held at the Riviera Conference Centre in Torquay.  Known as the “English Riviera” Torquay always holds a warm welcome for the competing bands.  The five sections will be held over two days, with the Fourth, Second and First section bands performing on Saturday, and the Third and Championship bands doing battle on Sunday.  This is one of the eight qualifying competitions held across the United Kingdom for the National Brass Band Finals.  The lower section finals (sections 1-4) are held in Cheltenham in September, and the successful Championship Section qualifiers are invited to compete in October at the Royal Albert Hall in London, for the opportunity to be crowned the National Brass Band Champions of Great Britain.  UK Brass bands are made up of the following instruments: –  Eb soprano cornet (1), Bb cornets (9), Bb flugel horn (1), Eb tenor horns (3), Bb baritone horns (2), Bb Euphoniums (2), Bb tenor trombones (2), bass trombone (1), EEb Tubas (2), BBb tubas (2), percussion and of course the conductor!

It promises to be a fantastic weekend of competition and BrassWindFix would like to wish all competing bands the very best of luck!

The competing bands in the Championship section are: –

Aldbourne, Bournemouth Concert Brass, Brunel Brass, Camborne Town, Chalford, Flowers (Gloucester), Lydbrook, Mount Charles, Sherborne Town, St Dennis and Woodfalls.
