Covered Lead Pipe
The dream: Creating the world’s best trumpets.
Master of Winds : AIOLIA (Line-up)
The state-of-the-art trumpet powered by the most advanced acoustic design.
What should the ultimate trumpet be like?
The AIOLIA embodies Shinji’s concept of the perfect trumpet. Aiolia was the god of the wind in Greek mythology, who lived on a floating island and was able to control the power of the wind. Best Brass’ AIOLIA collection was named after that god, and can produce rich powerful, yet majestic sound, which is also smooth and graceful.
Like its name sake, AIOLIA trumpets dominate the wind, and the tone produced will resonate throughout the entire concert hall. You owe it to yourself to try this ultimate collection of trumpets.
Creative Brass Instrument Design since 1982
The musical invention of Best Brass were the creation of founder, Shinji Hamanaga, and were created in the city of Hamamatsu in central Japan; a city famed for producing world-class musical instruments.
During his career at Yamaha Shinji designed almost every type of brass instrument from tubas to trumpets and was awarded 17 patents in brass design. In fact, trumpets designed Shinji were used by both trumpeters of Canadian Brass, Fred Mills and Ronald Romm, and horns designed by Shinji were used by Gerd Seifert and Johannes Ritzkowsky.
In 1999, as trumpet player himself, Shinji founded Best Brass with his dream in mind: “To create the world’s best trumpet.” This gave him total freedom to pursue his passion for innovation to create the highest quality trumpets; all powered by his remarkable talent and extensive experience.
