Specializing in Professional Brass Instrument Customization, Repair, and Refinishing
Charlie Melk

If you play a trumpet or cornet, you know that quality care and maintenance is what keeps you playing - whether that's in a band, a symphony, a weekend gig or in class as a teacher or a student. Charlie has been playing brass for more than 40 years, and he's been repairing and refinishing brass for nearly as long. Taught by a true craftsman in the industry, Phil Melk Jr., Charlie Melk has made a name for himself by combining old-world pride in craftsmanship with 21st century technology to provide you, the serious brass player, with the absolute best quality workmanship in customizing, repairing, or refinishing your trumpet or cornet.

Recommended by brass players the world over, you can reach Charlie Melk at his Brass Shop in the Milwaukee area.
