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.
