By his love to music he started a passionate analysis of this job. Particularly the working with wind instruments became the center of his life. First it was Manfred Schmelzer’s priority to sell instruments including the repair and service of metal wind instruments. He has been working in this special field for approximately 30 years. He has achieved profound specialist knowledge, that is well-known and appreciated in and outside Germany.
In the cause of the years he has accumulated a treasure of experience, which is very useful for advising his customers and for selling and servicing the instruments. Because of the increase of assembly-line production of instruments, he gradually came to the idea to return to the traditional production of trombones in high-quality.
