Martinus Geelen Trumpets
Handmade in the Netherlands
The workshop of MG Trumpets / Bec’s Brassworks is located in Wijk bij Duurstede, close to "the green heart" of the Netherlands. In the workshop we work with the two of us: Mark Geelen and Becci Carr. Mark is an instrument builder and professional trumpet player. He plays with several ensembles like the Dutch Bach Society (see www.allofbach.com) and as a guest player with the Orchestra of the 18th century. Becci (bec's brassworks) has had an interesting carreer as a designer and seamstress working for Ted Baker and Jack Wills. Then she decided to learn goldsmithing. Becci has magic hands and a good eye for detail. Whenever there is time (in between looking after our two little boys) Becci assists with repairs, maintenance and work on historic and modern instruments.
