Advert: Willson Christmas wishes

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.

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
