    Brass & Reed hosted the first NAPBIRT (National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians) convention I ever attended. I learned a lot. That shop has been there a long time cranking out good work.

    Actually, it's one guy. Charlie Clendenan owns the store and is the tech. He's overhauled three saxes for me, did the setup on my two Barones and my Ref 54 LE tenor, and does all my repairs. I just got my 12M back after he overhauled it. Nice job.

    When I was at Brass & Reed years ago the owner was Bill Birthrong senior and his son also did some good clinics. I figured the store was still in the family. I'm glad they still do good repairs.

    Want to thank you guys again for the suggestion. I finally took the time to take my flute to Charlie for various minor repairs. He did a wonderful job!
