Max B. Martin Schalmeien since 1905


MARTIN-Trumpets were invented by Max B. Martin in 1905. Its predecessors were the fanfare trumpets from the Deutsche Signal-Instrumenten-Fabrik, which was founded in Markneukirchen/Saxony in 1880. The Kaiser Fanfare comes from this celebrated era.

The original 8-note MARTIN-Trumpet range also includes the 4-fache Begleitung. This instrument is an invention of Otto Günther, the grandson of Max B. Martin. In 1984, the product portfolio was expanded to include the 16-note MARTIN-Trumpets.

It’s easy to learn to play music on these, even challenging pieces. Each note is produced by a tuned single-reed tongue.

State-of-the-art production technology enables us to achieve qualities such as consistent sound quality, long service lives and easy maintenance for the MARTIN-Trumpets.

All of our precision parts, such as valve stems and valve cones, are manufactured using modern CNC-controlled milling and turning machines. High accuracy of fit and excellent sealing are guaranteed. Each MARTIN-Trumpet is put through stringent quality testing before it is dispatched.

Aluminium alloys and plastics are also being used, in addition to the traditional materials, brass and nickel silver. The instruments are therefore lighter and oxidation is prevented. Furthermore, acceptance for plastic is growing among those who are allergic to nickel.
