In the 1970s Bob spent 10 years at Haynes Flutes developing all aspects of the most demanding detailed woodwind manufacturing and setup. He started off drop forging and making keys, then moved on to making foot joints, soldering, finishing and full assembly.  He brought this especially precise approach to his work later on Clarinets and Saxophones as well.

From there he opened up his own shop upstairs at Carl Fischer Music in Boston with the now infamous “To Pad Or Not TO Pad” entry gate- (those who know, know) and the thousands of signed photos of every known jazz and soul musician covering the walls. He cared for instruments for all the working pros and musicians coming through town on tours as well as school age children and entire schools.  When Carl Fischer closed he moved down to Steinway and had a shop there until relocating to Stoneham where he had shop for years as well.

This is where you want to go for small repairs on the run for working musicians, school setups for students, full overhauls, damage repairs and half pad jobs as well. Service offered on Clarinet, Saxophone, Flute, Kazoo (those are the most expensive) Piccolo, you name it, he will tussle with it and get it going.  He also usually has a stable of second hand, student to pro and vintage to modern horns for sale and also offers consignment sales.

King Silversonic 454xxx original 1970 Relic

This King Silversonic is exceptionally well preserved, it has been played very little.  The pads are original along with everything else including the original packing label, factory inspection tag and King Instruments catalog 1970 with a price of $835.00!  It currently plays, fairly well but being original pads it will need an overhaul for sure.  It’s in very nice condition and plays with a rather huge muscular and flexible tone. Many people would say that this mid 400-serial is the best period for King Silversonic.
