Today's the day! We do hope you can come out to our annual ACB Adams Brass Day... we have so many great trumpets, flugels, piccolo trumpets, euphoniums, and even the new Adams Trombone on display (and for purchases).
The New ACB prototype trumpet will also be available for testing.
Miel Adams is here and will be in the shop to answer any technical details you might have as well share a few laughs. From 5:30-7 we'll have a live band full of amazing musicians (Ryan Parker, Bruce Gertz, and Les Harris, Jr.) playing and we will open the session up to jam as well. Free and open to the public. Please consider attending if you can. We'd love to see you!

I'm not into resolutions but one thing I am going to really try to do more this upcoming year is teach more. I have missed it so much and miss seeing one's eyes light up after discovering new pathways to becoming a better musician. I am also looking into doing a few more outreach concerts/workshops (in between shows and possibly around these shows as well).
The Skype studio is going to launch a few new programs in January and if anyone is interested in a tpt/improv hang email us. I know the rates we charge (through the shop) are very friendly on the wallet.
Big hugs to everyone out there and I hope you are staying warm in the early parts of this crazy wintah!

FYI the shop is open with Ian and Scott manning the shop. I am working from home all morning as we had a bit of web store glitch these past few days with PayPal payments but I have corrected it. We switched over to a different payment gateway recently and it looks like some orders via PayPal weren't going through (thanks to my customers for bringing it to our attention yesterday).
That being said you can checkout via PayPal express checkout and it works fine (again). We will be following up with all of our clients who had issues with the paypal checkout system this past week in the next few days and get your orders processed. Thanks again for your wonderful support and patience!
If you had an order that didn't go through please be sure to email us and we'll help you asap.
Thanks everyone for your patience!

Season's greetings to you and yours!
Today is the last day the shop will be open before Christmas and I wanted to take a few moments to reflect from a stellar 2015. Thank all of you for the amazing support this holiday season. This year we have continued to grow and we simply couldn't do any of this without you! We LOVE setting up people with great gear to make their lives more easy and efficient. It's the reason we opened up our shop. Seeing people's eyes light up when they get more efficient gear and then hearing it live is pretty amazing. As we continue to expand we strive to make your experiences the better than ever at ACB
Thank you for astonishing support in 2015 and we wish you all the Best for 2016

Austin Custom Brass is looking for an energetic, enthusiastic shop assistant to help with daily duties in this busy retail brass musical instrument shop. Responsibilities include:
Helping clients find the trumpet, mouthpiece, or accessory that fits their needs.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Another exciting piece of news... our first batch of Adams Euphoniums available for purchase direct at ACB will be arriving in a few days. For years we have focused on the high brass side of things but now are finally expanding to trombones (we have a bunch for sale here at the shop right now), tubas, and euphoniums. Why not start out with IMO the best euphoniums on the market. We have the following available:
1. Adams E1 .60 Gold Brass Bell, in clear lacquer
2. Adams E1 .60 Sterling Silver bell, in brushed lacquer (sale pending)
3 Adams E2 .80 yellow brass bell, silver plated (Selected series).
We do have more coming in shortly but here's your very rare chance to order one today, save the 4 month wait and get an incredible instrument.
Email or call us today to set up an in-store trial. We can pick anyone up from Logan Airport, there's a nice hotel less than 1/2 of a mile away from the shop, and tons of great food options close. If you have been in the market for a world-class Adams Euphonium let us know and we can make it happen for you!

FYI we have new shop hours for the Spring/Summer 2015. The repair shop will be open M-F 9-2 (appointments are strongly encouraged) and the retail store is open 10-3 Tue-Sat. The retail shop will be closed for visitors Sunday and Monday.
