Leonard Smith

The exciting experience of playing my Reynolds Contemporas is beyond the power of words to describe. My matched trumpet and cornet respond instantly with a full-bodied brilliance and delicate sensitivity I had never imagined would be possible. Truly, these instruments are a triumph of engineering and craftsmanship and any player will achieve greatest performance with “Leonard Smith” models. After nine months of intensive concertizing, my only regret is that I did not discover these superb instruments many years ago.

This 1956 brochure features a number of articles and information, including a letter of introduction by Heinrich Roth (President, Roth-Reynolds), “You Can Play Better” by Leonard Smith, “Understanding Breath Technique” by Smith, Leonard Smith’s Warm-Up Drills, “Importance of Warm-Up” by Smith, and “Should I Choose Cornet or Trumpet?” by Smith, as well as Leonard Smith model trumpet and cornet product information.
