The dream: Creating the world’s best trumpets.
Heart of Art: ARTEMIS (Line-up)
A perfect fusion of tradition and innovation
― Taking conventional design to a new level.
ARTEMIS models are of a more traditional style, but feature state-of-the-art design and manufacturering. Artemis was the Greek goddess of hunting. An arrow released from her golden bow flew true with no deviation from its course no matter the distance. For this reason, Best Brass selected the name ARTEMIS as a symbol of thir strong will to achieve the excellence.
The models of this series have inherited the technological and artistic values of the AIOLIA trumpets, but based upon a more traditional approach to the design. ARTEMIS trumpets are a continuation of the wisdom and experience of the brass pioneers of the past, but with Best Brass levels of quality in design and manufacturering.
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.
