Designed and Made in USA!
My name is Sean. I'm an engineer and I've been playing trumpet for 20+ years. Every year, I'd go Christmas caroling with my wife and sister as a small brass ensemble. Last year was the last straw. I'm done carrying around those crappy sheet music lyres that scratch my lead pipe, rotate if too loose, strip the screw if too tight, start flopping around my old sheet music in the wind, etc. Hence, I designed the Gripophone.
Seriously, that's my home office over there. We made all our tooling, assembly fixtures, etc in our shop in Orange, CA. All Gripophones are made right here in the good old USA. I know you'll be happy with your purchase and you'll have the satisfaction of knowing all proceeds go toward feeding the brass musicians in my family =).
