The ‘Brasstache’ is taking the brass world by storm! Great for themed shows, cosplay, or just goofing around, the Brasstache reminds hardworking musicians not to take themselves too seriously. These make hilarious holiday or birthday gifts for the brass musicians in your life. They’re tons of fun!
MADE IN THE U.S.A. Every Brasstache is designed and manufactured in Chicago, IL by Robin Schulze. Robin is currently the bass trombonist of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago. In his own words:
As amazing as 3D printing is, one downside is that it is incredibly slow. It would take the printer around 30 minutes to make one Brasstache. This was not an efficient way to “mass produce” units. Injection molds are probably the most common way to produce something like this, but the upfront costs of those molds are upwards of $10,000 if produced in the US, and $4-5,000 if produced overseas. Money I do not have! I eventually came up with a solution to this mass production problem: I decided to make them entirely myself! I will not bore you with those details, but long story short it involves silicone, resin, and multiple 3D printers. With my method, I can make 100-200 an hour.
