What's on My Bench? A HUGE Shipment of Yamaha!

Guess what? We just got in lots of awesome, new Yamaha gear! Everything from pro level brass and woodwinds, to student violins and cellos. The majority of this giant stack that reaches all the way back to the garage bay door is new A stock, but there are some show demos and open boxes as well. There are also models we don’t see a lot, such as 8345RS Large Bore Reverse Leadpipe Trumpets, Eric Miyashiro models, and the awesome new 9435C Cornet!   If you’ve been waiting for that new Yamaha in your practice room, check our listings- you will...

What’s on My Bench? A Kanstul 1500A Trumpet!

Hey, Brass Fans! We’re all sad about the closure of the Kanstul factory, but here’s something to make you smile - a 1500A in fabulous condition! This horn has been played and shows very light hand wear, but other than that is in near perfect condition. After a good clean, I removed one tiny bell ping, and it’s good to go! Though this model looks heavy with the large bracing, it’s actually quite comfortable to play. Big broad sound, great intonation and overall just a super fun horn to play! It also comes with multiple tuning slides, an extra set...

Primo and the pTrumpets

Hey, everyone! We’ve all been super busy here at the igloo, so once again our friend Primo has taken on some holiday decorating in addition to his normal duties! This year he has chosen to decorate with pTrumpets, because they are so colorful, and we’ve had such good prices on them.  We are grateful for so many things this year - lots of great horns, a fabulous new location, and the health and safety of all of our employees. We are especially thankful for all of YOU! Without our loyal customers we couldn’t do what we do!The music isn’t gone...

What’s on My Bench? A 1947 Sterling Bell Reynolds Trumpet!

Hey, brass fans! I recently finished this fantastic horn, and thought you all might like to see some before and after photos. This is the third of this model that I’ve had cross my bench, and they are just as fun to play as they are to look at - so much, in fact, that I ended up buying one of them myself during my first couple of weeks of working at the Igloo. I’ll include some twinsies photos with mine, but mine is not for sale! As you can see from the photos, this horn came to us in...
