Have you always wanted an instrument that is especially made for you to your preferences and specifications? Then please contact us with your wishes and questions. Almost all the parts for your instrument will made here in the workshop. For bought in parts we use high quality (mostly european made) components. For example, our valve sections are like the ones used by Thein, Schagerl, Shires, etc. 

We build natural trumpets (see this page), rotary trumpets and perinet instruments. Customizing is not like using lego, where everything is interchangeable without compromises. That is when making a building plan we go off a few basic models that can be changed to your preferences. There is choice of chosen materials, bore, bell size, bell materials, finger hooks/rings, different brace styles, added (personal!) engravings, etc. At this moment in time we offer a few customisable models:

We also produce "historic" rotary trumpets, often used for romantic repertoire. We can use new parts made to historic specifications or we use original / salvaged parts. Most important is that we can use authentic techniques like making handmade tubing, bells, etc. to match original trumpets. The goal of producing a "historic" instrument is that it will play well. We can make rotary trumpets in any key/pitch. Please contact us for more information and/or questions.

We also build natural trumpets. A lot of info on these you can find on a completely seperate website. Just like all our other products these natural trumpets een developed straight from the practice of professional playing at a high level at for example the Netherlands Bach Society. As a player Martinus knows how important it is that an instrument just works.
