About Us

The Baroque Trumpet Shop is owned by Baroque Trumpet concert and recording artist Barry Bauguess. Offering the highest quality instruments, cases, mouthpieces, Baroque trumpet music and books, as well as impeccable service, we are the first shop in the U.S. to cater exclusively to Early Brass players. We offer Baroque trumpets, sackbuts, rotary valve trumpets, cases, and accessories from the world's finest makers including Egger, Galileo, Altenburg Baroque Trumpets, Münkwitz, Brass Bags, and Marcus Bonna.

For the Professional
Our instruments and accessories are personally chosen by Barry Bauguess to meet the most demanding needs of the professional Baroque trumpet artist. We personally play and test all our instruments. If we wouldn't play an instrument in concert, neither should you. In fact, I've played these instruments and mouthpieces in period orchestras throughout North America. Instruments from the Baroque Trumpet Shop are played in period orchestras and universities throughout the world including Apollo's Fire, Tafelmusik, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, Washington Bach Consort, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Oberlin Conservatory, University of Melbourne, Juilliard, Conservatoire de Musique du Montréal, McGill University, University of North Texas, and Case Western Reserve University. 

For the “new” Baroque Trumpet Player
From equipment to repertoire, we are available to answer any question regarding your baroque trumpet interests.
