Just a quick word about my collection of instruments, it is my goal to own the best instruments that The H. N. White Company made! For the most part this means that I am interested in "artist" level instruments but I will consider adding any rare instrument. This Collection of H. N. White is the finest collection on the internet with more "artist" level King instruments then any other!

Trumpets

Cornets

Bugles

Trombones

Saxophones

French Horns

Mellophones/Altos

Clarinets

 

One of the best instruments produced by The H. N. White Company was their trumpets! Built like tanks, with a sweet mellow tone that other companies tried to copy but were never able to! White made trumpets are among the best “mass” made trumpets of all time. Each trumpet was made by hand from accomplished craftsmen with the finest material and design.
