Paxman Musical Instruments Ltd

197 Long Lane, London, SE1 4PD

Over 100 Years of Exceptional Craftsmanship


In 1919, three brothers (Harry, Bertram and William Paxman) started a company supplying brass, woodwind and percussion instruments from an address in Southwark, South London. Over the following 100 years, that company would come to specialise in the supply and manufacture of the horns which are today a mainstay of the global horn playing community.

England’s Finest

Over one hundred years after the company was founded, Paxman is at the pinnacle of international horn playing, with Paxman horns found in the hands of top players on every major concert platform around the world.

The instruments are hand built using techniques that have not changed since the manufacture of the first valved horn in the 19th century, whilst at the same time making use, where appropriate, of 21st century technologies.
