M&W owners and craftsmen Michael McLemore and Matthew Walker bring a wealth of experience and expertise to M&W Custom Trombones. They met while building the original Greenhoe instruments in Jackson, Wisconsin prior to that factory’s closing in 2012. While at Greenhoe, they realized that they worked well together, respected each other’s abilities, and had similar thoughts regarding instrument manufacturing. Not satisfied with simply re-creating a previously existing design, they developed M&W Custom Trombones, incorporating many of their own ideas and concepts that had not been previously utilized. As McLemore and Walker are the sole technicians at M&W, they craft every instrument by hand with consistent attention to accuracy, detail and quality control.
