If you need an instrument that plays to professional standards we make new models of trumpets in all keys that have superb intonation and sound.  Musicians can also design their own trumpet (you select components, we assemble). Have a horn that needs some help/tweaking?  TDS can assist!  Want to restore a vintage horn without sacrificing its original performance integrity? Want to convert a trumpet to a different key? Consult with us via email about your individual project for solutions that fit a musicians budget.
