We are a Northampton based company who specialise in giving some of the best deals available on both musical instruments and accessories. With over 30 years experience in the music industry you can be certain that we will find you some of the best prices available today.
In recent years, we have found a number of manufacturers producing instruments of inconsistent quality at very high prices. Since August 2005, we have been pleased to offer this new range of instruments under our own Virtuosi brand name. First Brass have been the driving force behind developing this brand and bringing it to the UK market. Many of the instruments and accessories have been manufactured to our own designs and specifications. Aimed solely at UK buyers, they offer exceptional value for money across the range. In many instances the instruments in the Virtuosi range are priced at as much as half of that of similar instruments from other manufacturers. We now supply many individual players, teachers, schools, bands, and Music authorities with instruments from the Virtuosi range.
The Virtuosi range includes a large selection of brass, woodwind, string and percussion instruments, as well as a range accessories including cases, gig-bags, mouthpieces, mutes, care kits, music bags, music stands, instrument stands. Over the next few months First Brass will be introducing a number of new instruments and accessories to the Virtuosi range. Please feel free to contact us for details of availability of these new products.
Brochures and price lists are available on request (please use the details on the contact page). If you visit our trade/retail warehouse in Northampton, you will be able to view and try many of the instruments in the Virtuosi range (please phone for details of our opening hours). Alternatively, if you wish to try any of the brass instruments in a band situation, one of our sales staff will be more than happy to visit your bandroom on a rehearsal night for an on-site demonstration (with no commitment to buy on your part).
Many of the instruments are currently being reviewed in the national press, and we have a series of reviews, features, and advertisements in the British Bandsman, The Brass Herald, and on 4 Bars-Rest. Read what the experts are saying about the Virtuosi range of instruments.
We still stock a selection of second hand instruments; many that have been part exchanged by customers upgrading to newer instruments. The stock changes daily so if you are looking for a specific item please contact us for details of current stock.
We Pay You for your unwanted instruments and music. We will quote you on any items of brass, percussion and music whatever the condition (even the scrap !!!)
Whether you have some old worn out instruments that have not seen the light of day for many years, or maybe you have some more recent instruments that have been damaged and cannot be played, we will buy them from you, giving you cash that can be used to purchase new/usable instruments and music.
