"After reading through the book a couple of times, I am very impressed with his thorough (yet straightforward) explanations . . . It is highly recommended for music educators and horn players at all levels, and should be considered essential reading for all horn teachers and band directors. Bravo and thank you to Glen Perry for producing a terrific book!" --Dr. James Boldin, University of Louisiana Monroe
"The book as a whole reinforces some processes that have been passed down through time, but also dispels some myths that could cause serious damage . . . I am grateful to Mr. Perry for giving us an extensive maintenance and repair resource that is devoted specifically to the horn." -- Dr. Jeffrey L Snedeker - The Horn Call

See What Our Customers Are Saying:
Glen Perry took my 1947 Martin Committee and lovingly restored it and overhauled. It looks great and plays great. He has a care for his work that is hard to find in today's world. Old world craftsmanship and love for the work are evident in the way he holds and talks about your instrument. He is very knowledgeable and skilled. He came well recommended to me from a pro and I recommend him to others. I have just taken him my 1940s NY Bach Strad Trumpet to work on. Not mentioned here is that he is a luthier. Ask him about that and take a look at his custom instruments.
Mr. Perry has been a featured author on the subject of musical instrument repair for a nationally recognized music educator's publication "School Band & Orchestra Magazine.
His Book "The Essential Guide to French horn Maintenance" is available on Amazon and other online booksellers.
