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.




…….”In 2008 I worked as musical Director in Las Vegas for The Tom Dane Show. During my stay in Vegas I was introduced to Tony Scodwell, and made an instant connection. Coming from Denmark I never experienced the journey of having a trumpet custom built for me – a journey I never will forget. The moment I played the horn for the first time, I was completely hooked!!! All notes in all registers responded just perfectly, and tuning, slotting and precision was no longer a problem for me. And being a session musician I just got so many comments on the brilliance of the sound comming from my horn. When I got back to Denmark I just had to have one of Tonys C trumpets – a horn that I constantly uses for church concerts and recordings. All Tony?s horns are made with the true heart of a brilliant trumpet player and musician – and they have, in the making only been touched by him from start to finish, a detail I just love and appreciate.
