Financing Your New Horn

We’re often asked by customers if we offer financing. The best way to finance a large purchase is with PayPal or a credit card.  PayPal offers six months of no interest financing on purchases over $99. You can choose PayPal financing on our website during the checkout process.  For longer terms, credit cards are the best option. Some cards offer interest-free financing for up to twenty-one months. Sites like Nerdwallet (http://www.nerdwallet.com/the-best-credit-cards) can help you find the best card for your needs and circumstances.

Horn Tech Jim Engele with Ed Shenk

Osmun Music horn tech Jim Engele with Ed Shenk and his new Engelbert Schmid double horn

We’re pleased to welcome Ed Shenk as our newest Engelbert Schmid horn owner. Ed’s retired from an engineering career at Polaroid. He currently plays in local amateur ensembles and in a horn quartet. I know the horn will get a lot of good use!

Ed’s passion though, is resurrecting classic horn quartet music. He’s transcribed, edited, and published all 136 of the Gumbert quartets as well as others by Dauprat and Javault and various duets and trios.

Mute Crib

Ed’s Mute Crib holds two mutes and folds flat .

Interestingly, he’s transposed everything into F and includes an alternate fourth part for euphonium. He also makes a gadget called a “Mute Crib” that holds two mutes within easy reach . All the music is available on his website: at http://www.cadtronix.com. Be sure to check it out.
