These instruments are specified for my sale. The design meets my requirements and I pay much more for them than the usual Chinese stock Instruments.
Since the 1960's the city of Tianjin, just south of Beijing was been the capital of instrument manufacturing, much like Elkhart, Indiana here in the US. With many small factories each producing producing specific instruments, the Tianjin Music Instrument Industry company was formed to put them together under one name, to produce the Hunter line of quality hand made instruments. They have a huge warehouse and parts supply in New York City with every instrument in stock.
There is now a dawning appreciation of the best of these that are made in close cooperation with Western instrument makers like me, who go to the factories, approve the designs, materials and construction and then personally inspect/fix/play the instruments before offering them for sale.
You would be surprised at how many top names in brass instruments are actually made in their factory. Players think nothing of purchasing instruments from Europe and now with the explosion of technology, the Far East is using cutting edge technology and the finest materials for custom lines like mine. This allows us to offer solid instruments that play wonderfully at the most competitive price.
