There's a lovely new music supplies shop here in sunny Wrexham that you might like to visit. I popped in today for a quick look and came out with two discount bottles of Denis Wick Advanced valve oil and a Trevor James silver cloth - all for £11.50 ish! I thought I had to pass the details on to all the local bandsmen - County Music Supplies is on Charles Street, 01978 357722 according to my leaflet. I have no part in the company but I must say I was impressed. The shop workers were friendly brass specialists, and I had a nice chat with them, a trombonist and a bass player from Wrexham Brass. Their brass section is actually quite impressive - slide grease, chromatic tuners, valve oils, polishing cloths, books of solos, cornet mutes (they assure me others are on order) and Denis Wick and Vincent Bach mouthpieces. This place must be good because I actually parted with some money there! Those of you who know me will know I am of an Arkwright disposition ("G-g-granville! Fetch yer cloth!"). Thanks for reading this long and rambling post, but, seriously, do pop in if you're of a brassy disposition or even give them a ring if you're not sure.
