Legendary Instrument Maker
Visiting Q&F - Montgomery
S.E. Shires Company
Steve Shires brings over three decades of experience as a trombonist and instrument technician to the design and construction of brass instruments of unsurpassed quality and beauty. He has worked with many of the world’s greatest brass players to design new or modify existing instruments to their exacting specifications, and often beyond their most optimistic expectations.
After many years working for a variety of manufacturers and retail shops, he founded the S.E. Shires Company in 1995, building the first dozen or so instruments in the basement of his home before moving to the current workshop in Hopedale, Massachusetts. Steve’s reputation engendered immediate curiosity among trombonists, and orders from throughout the country soon followed. Distributorships were established in Germany and Japan and by 1996 S.E. Shires trombones could be heard in concert halls around the world.
On Thursday May 11th, Steve will be at the store to help you select your custom S.E. Shires trumpet or trombone...or just to talk shop!
