A huge top quality range of instruments has given Willson a world class reputation in 2011.

Willson

 

The Willson range of artists has developed this year, with more players choosing to profile their skills on a world class Willson instrument.

Musical sense

Skilled craftsmanship and intuition, a sure musical sense and an understanding for musicians' wishes continue to make Willson products highly desirable, with a reputation in musical circles of many years standing.

Top players

The cornet range continues to be the instrument of choice for Philip Cobb, James Fountain, Iain Culross and Chloe Abbott.

Developments continue with the new Euphonium models and artist developments are expected in the New Year. Established artists such as Robin Taylor and Charley Brighton continue to endorse their Willson Euphoniums.
