It’s taken several years, but www.salisburymusic.com is finally back. Don’t expect anything exotic, just a place for information and a way to communicate to our customers. We’re doing this on a blogging platform(wordpress), although we’re not using it as a “blog” per say.
Here’s a quick tour:
- This section your reading right now is where I’ll be be making announcements, sharing pictures or stories of things going on. Expect this section to change quite frequently.
- Across the top, above our logo you’ll see a series of “text buttons”. Clicking on one of those will take you to a page with specific information about that aspect of our business. These text buttons will always be visible, no matter what page you happen to be on. Just click on FRONT PAGE, to return to the home page.
- Down the right side(also always visible) are a series of boxes with information, links, etc.
Thank you for your continued support over the years.

Repair Tool of the Week
Trombone Cork Barrel Mandrels (tenor trb. on top, bass trb. on bottom)
These mandrels are used to remove dents in the cork barrel of the trombone slide. The cork barrels are the 2 pieces of short tubing at the top of the inside hand slide. (the slide lock is on the mouthpiece cork barrel) In the closed position, the outside slide goes up inside these cork barrels. The smaller end of the mandrel fits between the inside slide and the cork barrel. In the pictures below you can see the mandrel partially over the slide, and fully in position.
The advantage of these mandrels is that we do not have to un-solder the inside slide to remove dents in the cork barrel. We are able to remove the dents much easier, much quicker, and consequently less expensively.
