Sharon Mccallum - Bones and Bugles



"I am absolutely delighted with the miraculous transformation in my instrument which Sharon has restored to its former glory. My Elkhart Conn Bb/F, which i bought in the US in the early fifties, was probably the first one introduced into the UK." (Arthur Wilson)

"Sharon McCallum has worked on my instruments many times. Her work I have found to be most satisfactory. In some departments I think she is the best". (Don Lusher)

"The work that you've done on our behalf, has always been of the highest quality. You've always done it quickly, sometimes even while we've waited. But always of the highest quality. You are a true craftsman, or should we say craftsperson?" (Gracie and Bill Geldard)

"Sharon McCallum does state-of-the-art repair work. She consistently produces the highest quality work with careful attention to details and true craftsmanship". (Don Lucas: Professor of Trombone Texas Technical University)

"When I visited your workshop without prior arrangement, you were kind enough to stop work and deal with my bent 3rd valve slide immediately". (Gareth Bimson: Co-Principal trumpet BBC Symphony Orchestra)

"The work you have done was carried out to a very high standard and the speed of service was exceptional". (Mark Eager: Principal trombone BBC National Orchestra of Wales)


"Sharon has maintained my instruments for a few years now. Anything from a new valve spring to a major rebuild. Always beautifully done and promptly". (Tony Fisher: session trumpet player)

"Skilful, prompt, personal and reasonable - everything the pro brass player is looking for". (Campbell Burnap: Jazz trombonist and broadcaster)

"Sharon is the best slide specialist around by a long way - it's great being able to recommend her without hesitation to students and professionals alike". (Eric Crees: Trombone LSO)

"We are a pretty careless lot with our expensive lengths of tubing. Sharon is the best friend a brass player in need could have. Just do what I do - let Sharon sort it out". (Tony Parsons, editor The Trombonist)
