Have [the TM Custom Brass Resonators] in my SBA alto and Silversonic tenor--ordered some for my VI alto---these guys bark!

It's my third Hiscox, third thumb rest, and one Yani Soprano from you guys... Great service, and all safe and well received!

Fantastic personal service! They won’t quit until you’re satisfied and do some of the best repair work in the country.

-Michael K.

Waiting on my first TM Custom to be delivered. Service is excellent. Felt like they were designing horn for me. Awesome.


-Michael W.

Had my Couf Superba II tenor rebuilt here. I was a little skeptical at first 'cause the horn seemed like it was a lost cause. I couldn't believe the end result. Will be sending another tenor here soon.
