The Endsley Collection

Sort by

The following is a tribute to a great man and one of the  big reasons Austin Custom Brass exists.   Without Jerry teaching my friend Doug Meeuwsen a bunch about how to handmake trumpet mouthpieces  I am sure   I wouldn't  haven't started ACB.   When the family approached me to start helping with the sale of some of his collection I was more than happy to help.   

Please note ACB will not be running these sales.  We are helping the Endsley estate sell Jerry's collection.    We are simply acting as a liaison and  all sales will go directly through the family.   This way the family gets all the proceeds eliminating a middleman.

It is to be assumed all sales are final through the estate and horns are in as-is condition.  Any questions should be asked prior to purchasing the instruments. 

We will host all photos,  videos, and be happy to answer any questions.  There's a LOT in this collection (just see the video for the "vault picture")  and we will be listing all items when they become available.
