Paxman has always had a reputation as the first place to get advice on all aspects of the horn, and this is something that we are constantly building on. When you visit the showroom, the first people you will encounter will be Steve Flower or Martyn Bayliss, both of them professional horn players, who will provide an unequalled level of expertise.
