Brass Links

Below are links to my history pages for many brass instrument makers of the 19th century and a few in the 20th. Additions and corrections are always welcome as well as photos of instruments for makers that I have none for. Please email your information to Check back as I am always adding more makers and searching for more photos of instruments. Some of these makers are very obscure and others are very well known.
