A pleasure to help the player of this T7 with the addition of a plateau key.

The owner had developed finger and joint problems over the years and was finding covering holes perfectly a challenge especially as they reached for the l/h B etc.

Re-cutting the chimney as a tone hole and then Inverting the tone hole taper means that the note speaks perfectly as well as being easy to play.

It surprised me just how nice this felt in the hand and to play, so much so that I'm considering making it an option on all our T6 and T7 clarinets.

Do you or a pupil have joint or finger problems? Get in touch: we can help you too... 🙂

After 40 years of wear this fingerboard had deep gouges - up to ¼ inch deep! Here it is following refurb... the finish looks possibly better than new. It's so pleasing to restore a beautiful instrument.

Latest edition of the Hanson Tenor Horn finished today. This model features several new updates and I think is possibly the best horn I've ever played... responds easily through all the registers; sits perfectly balanced in your hand; fast, light valves exactly as the original round stamp horns and looks stunning in 25 year Sheffield silver plate and 24 karat gold. Superb workmanship Jason!

The horns we make are bespoke, this has to be one of my favourites.

Gloria (my new Hanson LX Raw) looking resplendent
If you are at all considering a new Sax, take a journey to some of the best customer service locations you can experience, pop over to Marsden - Alastair and the crew there are amazing This LX (now named Gloria and christened tonight) is absolutely perfection. I now know why people rave on about the Hanson Saxophones. I mean, I have a lovely SE Bb clarinet from Hanson, and I love that (she’s called Celine) but this Sax is out of this WORLD! Thank you, Alastair
