Eclipse was originally set up as a repair facility for all brass instruments and very quickly gained a very good reputation for high quality repair and lacquer work. Our reputation led to repair work being carried out on behalf of many leading manufacturers and soon after, finishing work on custom manufactured trumpets.
In July 2001 we decided to develop a new design of professional level trumpet. Prototype models were developed, assembled and put through their paces by pro players from a variety of backgrounds. Many years experience in manufacture meant the company already knew how to make trumpets - the challenge was now to design one that really kicked!
Many sleepless night later, we achieved our aim with the birth of the Eclipse trumpet. The Eclipse line of trumpets was launched in March 2003 at the Frankfurt Music Messe.
