Ryan Greenaway – Custom Shop Black Nickel Plated Professional Baritone Saxophone

“What an unbelievable Sax…

The build quality of this instrument cannot be beaten, from the moment you open the case you can just see how beautifully made it is.

The two necks made of Lacquered Red Brass and Silver Plated Yellow Brass offer a lovely choice of tone and back pressure. The Silver Plated Yellow Brass neck offers a tone that is so bright and bitey that it will never get drowned out. The Red Brass is so smooth and will fit into any soft ballad, but it can still punch out a big sound if required.

I normally play a Selmer C** mouthpiece, but the truth is that I haven’t even got it out yet as the supplied Rico style mouthpiece is so natural I have chosen to stick with it for a while.

I know you don’t play the case, but the black leather, aluminum re-enforced case with multiple handles and great running wheels is the best supplied case I have ever seen…. really top notch!!

Getting my new Bari Custom Built from Big Band Instrument Sales – Australia really allowed me to get everything I have ever wanted in a Sax”

Mike Hallam – WISEMANN FLH–600 Custom Shop Flugel Horn

“Altogether a beautiful horn…

With a deep mouthpiece you will get that very dark warm sound preferred by brass bands, largely due to the rose brass construction, but with something slightly smaller the sound can be perfect for jazz ballads

The build quality of these instruments is Excellent with stainless steel valve pistons and a very solid feel!

Happily purchased from Big Band Instrument Sales – Australia”

Keith Greenaway – Wisemann DTB–600 Custom Shop Bb/F Trombone

“I LOVE THIS TROMBONE

The Wisemann DTB-600 Custom Shop stands amongst the best of the large bore Tenors
Fitted with a Rose Brass bell and Nickel Silver outer slide, this instrument produces a beautiful tone colour.

The Thayer Valve open wrap F attachment design is far superior to the old rotary valve designs.
Consistent resistance when operating the Thayer Valve makes it a pleasure to play.

To add to it’s versatility the DTB-600 Custom Shop comes with three different taper Lead Pipes.
Simply screw out one pipe and screw in a different Lead Pipe to alter the tone colour and feel of the trombone. The difference is truly amazing

What a great Trombone

It has all the features of an Edwards T350-E without the price tag.

Happily purchased from Big Band Instrument Sales – Australia”

Neville Lauridsen – Wisemann Super Jazz Professional Model Trumpet

Neville Lauridsen
Trumpet/Flugel Horn Soloist/Performer
Palmerston North Boys High School Big Band Music Director

“The Wisemann Super Jazz trumpet is a great instrument as an all rounder or particularly as a trumpet that produces a great sound for ballads and obviously jazz work.

The materials of manufacture, its large bore and bell combine to give this instrument a beautiful full sound, right through its range. Together with its recessed valve top, weighted valve bottom caps, short stroke valve action and general comfort makes this instrument a pleasure to hold and play.

It doesn’t have the harsh sound of most trumpets but still keeps that distinct trumpet tone. I have been looking for a trumpet such as this for a long time.

The quality of manufacture is outstanding. From its stainless valve construction, perfect intonation, through to the beautiful engraved finish, every care has been taken.

This is a great instrument!!”
