View Full Version : Selmer Hylan

I am looking to purchase a new trumpet for my son. He's 10 years old and just starting out. I found a dealer who has a trumpet, and he says it is made by Selmer. It has the brand name "Hylan" engraved near the bell. The dealer told me that this was a custom made horn in Selmers China factory.

My concern is that when I searched "Hylan" on the internet, the name never came up connected to a trumpet. The name also did not appear on the Conn Selmer Web Page. The dealer assures me that this is a quality trumpet and has been sold to many orchestras across the country. I'm hoping someone out there has heard about Hylan and can tell me if the dealer is telling the truth and handing me a line.
