Happy Valve Alignment Customer!

Here’s an email we received from Alex Cabrera of Infinity Music a few days after he visited the shop and got a Bob Reeves Valve Alignment:

Bob,

Thank you so much for spending time with me and getting the alignment straight on my Benge. I started a three night gig at the casino and must say last night was the first night with the new adjustments you made. I must admit that it was free blowing in the upper and lower register and I had enough chops at the end of the 4 set gig to do another 4 set gig. I knowyou said that the horn was way out of whack or if I used your words “YOU DON’T KNOW THIS HORN”. You are absolutely correct!! I did not know it but I must admit I am getting to know it and it is AWESOME. Thank you once againfor setting this horn up correctly. I am sending you my Kanstul Copper bell Flugelhorn next. I have one more trumpet to do the following month then we can start the talks on a custom mouthpiece.

Bob Reeves Brass – Holiday Hours

Happy holidays to you from everyone here at Bob Reeves Brass. As the year draws to a close, we are thankful to all of our customers & dealers for giving us the opportunity to work with you, and look forward to an even better 2011 filled with new and exciting things!

Holiday Closures

If you are trying to reach us, please note that we will be closed from Thursday, December 23rd through Sunday, January 2nd. We will be open for business as usual on Monday, January 3rd.

Appointments

Also, we are booked up on alignment appointments and custom work for the rest of the year. We are already booking appointments in January, so if you have something you want done, you’ll want to give us a call or email.

Orders

We are currently back-ordered on mouthpieces through the end of the year. That means orders placed now will not ship until January. We do have a limited stock of mouthpieces on the shelf, so if the particular model you are looking for is in stock we can ship right away.

Happy Thanksgiving! Shop Closed Thursday & Friday

Happy Thanksgiving! We will be celebrating with our friends and family this year, so the shop will be closed on Thursday & Friday November 25-26. We will back in the shop for business as usual on Monday.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to keep making mouthpieces and performing valve alignments year after year (for 41+ years now!).

All the best,

Bob & the Staff

Automotive X-Prize

We talk to many trumpet players every day, but not everyone we talk to plays trumpet for a living (in fact most do not). Last week I had the pleasure to talk with Thomas Pasko who has two passions, trumpet and cars. On the trumpet side of things he plays a Bach mouthpiece for most stuff and then moves to a Bob Reeves 42/M when he needs a little more efficiency. However, we come to find out that he was just back from competing in the Automotive X-Prize, where his team the Illuminati Motor Works  just took 2nd place, and probably should have won the $5 million prize.

It’s great to talk with people who are so passionate about what they do.  Do yourself a favor and check out their web site at http://illuminatimotorworks.org/.

 

Happy Autumn (with Sarah Vaughan and Wynton Marsalis)!

Happy Fall (or Autumn)! We didn’t get much of a Summer here in Valencia, CA, with most of the days being cloudy and temperatures in the 70’s.

Besides making mouthpieces and accessories, we have been working on some new exciting projects here at the shop. Some of these projects are still super-secret, but I can tell you that one of them is our long-awaited line of symphonic mouthpieces. Keep checking back here regularly for the latest updates.

If you are not in the Autumn mood yet, maybe this video of Sarah Vaughan and Wynton Marsalis playing Autumn Leaves will get you in the right spot! Enjoy!

Charley Davis Trumpet Video – “Something”

We’ve been swamped here the last few weeks and haven’t been able to update the blog as much as we’d like. We just had Charley drop by the other day for a valve alignment and though it would be great to share this video of him back in his Buddy Rich days playing the tune “Something”. I can’t think of a better way to spend the weekend than listening to a beautiful song played by a wonderful trumpet player. Enjoy!
