How do I find information on my Boosey & Hawkes instrument?

Following the sale of Boosey & Hawkes Musical Instruments in 2003, Boosey & Hawkes Music Publishers Ltd no longer holds any records on the old instrument manufacture business, and is unable to offer any advice about instrument history, maintenance, repair or evaluation.

Enquiries should now be addressed to the individual instrument companies:

For woodwinds and brass, contact Buffet Crampon.
For stringed instruments, contact Paesold.
For guitars and stringed instruments, contact Höfner.

If your instrument is branded as Boosey, Hawkes, Boosey & Hawkes, or any combinations or variations of these names, please follow the link for the appropriate instrument type.

You may also contact London Musical Instruments Ltd (http://www.londonmi.co.uk/), a company formed by experienced staff from Besson. London Musical Instruments produce top quality brass instruments in England, and are a great source of knowledge about Boosey & Hawkes instruments. Email london.musical.instruments@unicombox.co.uk or telephone +44 (0)1438 832883.
