Contributing Information to this Project

These web pages are a work in progress; if you have any additional information or corrections, please Email the information to our support Email address. Please note that even though current ownership information may be available for particular instruments, we absolutely will not publish it, even if we have it. What we would like to publish is interesting notes about an instrument; such as unusual keywork, unusual wood, etc. Also interesting would be the instrument's history--sales, rebuilding or keywork added, used in the world premier of Mahler's Symphony #5, etc.
