Blessing is a company in the music business who puts the music ahead of the business. They make trumpets for pros that can captivate a symphony hall audience or “rip” in the high register for commercial work. Their student horns blow easily and can take a beating. Blessing offers trumpets, cornets, flugelhorns, trombones, and marching brass instruments. Their Great Grandpa Emil came from Germany and started it all in 1906. Three generations of the family followed, making Blessing a household name in the world of brass instruments. Newly owned by Powell Flutes and operated by folks obsessed with quality.
