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 have played Scodwell trumpets and flugelhorns for ten years. I own several of Tony’s instruments and have found them to be far better than any other horns I have played. The feel, response and projection of his horns have to be experienced to truly appreciate the craftsmanship that Tony puts into each one. On long gigs, where other horns would get harder to play as fatigue sets in, the Scodwell continues to respond and play as easily on the last set as it did in the first. In addition to being a world class trumpet player and horn builder, Tony is also a great guy on a personal level. This only adds to the satisfaction and pleasure of playing the finest trumpets on the planet!
