Event: S.E. Shires Company Partnership

In the first week of May, Bob Johnstonbaugh and repair technician, Jake Ishman visited
the S.E. Shires Co. Custom Brass Instrument Factory in Hopedale MA to establish a new partnership.

This small trombone and trumpet factory builds high quality, professional instruments
designed by founder Steve Shires with unsurpassed attention to materials and details in the
manufacturing and finishing of their instruments.

Johnstonbaugh personally inspected a large selection of new instruments and learned about
a wide array of custom options. Ishman received extensive repair training that included hand
slides and rotary and piston valves in order to establish Johnstonbaugh’s Music as an authorized
S.E. Shires Repair and Warranty Center.

During the visit, Johnstonbaugh and Ishman met with Shires and the S.E. Shires Co. employees,
the majority of whom play professionally in the Boston area, and went on an in depth tour where
they watched Shires spin trumpet and trombone bells on his lathe.

After this experience, Johnstonbaugh’s Music Centers understands first hand why the S.E. Shires
brand instruments is the choice of professionals like Jim Nova of the Pittsburgh Symphony.
Johnstonbaugh’s is excited to announce that an opening order has been placed, establishing
Johnstonbaugh’s as Western Pennsylvania’s exclusive S.E. Shires instrument retailer and authorized
repair and warranty center.
