Mr. Pérez was Ambassador of the B&S Group in Latin America until January 2013.
The TRUMPET MAKING COURSE is mostly intended for those players of brass instruments who are interested in a deep knowledge of their own instrument physics, as well as for the restoration or museum technician.
Starting from raw materials, such as brass sheet and silver solder, using similar tooling of the original maker (hammers, anvil and few mandrels), a Hanns Hainlein’s Trumpet(1.632) replica will be made. There would be other models available, but should be considered upon individual petition and subsequently study.
Working schedule will be (Mon to Fri) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A break of about 30 minutes will be taken.
Francisco Pérez will bring tooling to the workshop course.
It is forbidden to work without wearing work clothes, as well as hand gloves (for mechanical work) and hearing protection.
