Sterling Instruments


Sterling Musical Instruments have been manufacturing in the UK since 1987, producing brass instruments specifically aimed at the British style brass band.

By employing several Boosey & Hawkes craftsmen, the company was able to rapidly establish itself in the brass band market, producing hand built quality instruments. The next stage of development was to recognise the growing demand by musicians, that not everyone wanted the standard 'off the shelf' instrument. This has resulted in the development of the new 'Sterling Virtuoso Range', which allows musicians to design an instrument that best suits their needs and demands.

The founder and sole owner of Sterling, Paul Riggett (himself an accomplished brass musician), was previously Manufacturing Manager for Boosey & Hawkes Ltd before creating Sterling. As such, he has unequalled experience in the manufacture and design of professional brass instruments. To ensure complete customer satisfaction, anyone wishing to purchase a Sterling Virtuoso instrument has the opportunity of a free consultation with Paul to discuss which options would best suit their needs.

Glyn will also accompany customers to the Sterling Factory to assist in their choice of the perfect instrument.
