I'd like to officially welcome the newest member of the Harrelson Trumpets team... Christine Palmer... Christine has spent her days so far shadowing each of us to learn more about Harrelson Trumpets and the daily ins and outs of our business... I think she's been having fun so far... but here's what she had to say...
My name is Christine and I'm the newest face around Harrelson Trumpets here. I'm a trumpet player from the MN area, currently working on my graduate degree at the University of Colorado. If you're a trumpet player, (and you probably are, if you're reading this!) then Harrelson Trumpets must seem like a place brimming over with experimentation, creativity, and courageous endeavors. Well, I'm telling you that the reality is no different! Although I'm just beginning to learn how things work around here, it really is inspiring to see this process of dreaming, designing, and manufacturing come about. Jason just never stops thinking! He always seems to be working on 20 projects - creating custom metal work and inventing ways to take the instrument to new heights, all while building each client's instrument by hand, taking care of his built-from-scratch business, and happily talking shop with anyone who walks in! It is like a candy shop to a science and music lover like me.
James is always at the workbench too, completing the finishing touches on each instrument like an energizer bunny. Jen works in the office, reveling in her niche as artwork and website extraordinaire. And Paul helps connect all our clients with their ideal axe - while handling most other parts of the business. This summer, Jake is here as well to lend a hand with cleaning and prepping lots of trumpet parts - and to regale us with some wicked trumpet licks in the show room. :-) All in all, it is a fantastic environment and I am so excited to join the team! I look forward to getting to know many of you soon,
