Superior Sound With Limited-Production Brass Instruments by Tony Scodwell

Your instrument is an extension of you. Trust your biggest asset to those who specialize in building custom trumpets and flugelhorns – Scodwell USA. At its helm is Tony Scodwell, a renowned trumpet player and musician based in Las Vegas whose career spans more than 50 years and has appeared with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, the Harry James Orchestra and Doc Severinsen’s Big Band.

Scodwell USA produces impeccably crafted trumpets and flugelhorns with balance, finesse and a rich, open sound. The philosophy that has guided us for more than 25 years is simple: One instrument at a time, no corners cut, and only the finest materials. We draw from a diverse background in big band, jazz and symphony performances and field test our instruments extensively to ensure a brilliant, balanced expression. After all, great musicians and great craftsmen are not always one and the same. At Scodwell USA, you’ll find both.




I am the proud owner of a TONY SCODWELL trumpet. I have a SCODWELL USA Bb Standard Model, #0184 to be exact. The first thing I notice in playing the horn is the response. It responds immediately and is a very “free blowing” trumpet. To me it produces a BIG WARM sound very efficiently with its.460 bore size. It also has plenty of ZIP when I feel I need to project more. The intonation is wonderful and I use a minimum of alternate fingerings. I really enjoy the balance of the horn as I hold it in my left hand. I am very happy with the valves. Since I acquired my Scodwell several of my friends have purchased Scodwell’s and I have found a recurring theme of wonderful quality control and very consistent sound production in every one of them. I highly recommend SCODWELL USA trumpets for all players – from beginners to top notch professionals.
