New baritone bombarde, Bb bombarde, sheepskin pipe bags… It’s the start of school year !

The new project “Sonneurs” and the baritone bombarde

Several projects are on fire and ready to launch, starting with the design of a baritone bombard in G. Great novelty for the start of the school year, this bombarde is the fruit of a collaboration with Erwan and Guénolé Keravec, Mickaël Cozien and Erwan Hamon, in particular, for the new formula of the “Sonneurs” project.

A stock of pipe bags

In September we had the opportunity to do several series of pipe bags for teachers and their students, but also for music stores, for example.
On the making side:  Thread, gluing, assembly, stitching, etc. : everything is done by hand, for great precision and irreproachable regularity!
