Heritage (noun): valued objects and qualities that have been passed down…
Vanguard Orchestral is a brand built on ten years of solid experience and reputation. Since its inception as Music Services in 2004, Vanguard has been providing superior quality repair and retail services that New Zealand’s music community has come to rely on and trust. It has attracted skilled technicians who are musicians themselves and who share the ethos that Vanguard’s customers are its highest priority.
Vanguard’s repairs are second to none. Customers who appreciate this quality of work also understand the importance of purchasing their first or next instrument from salespeople who can access the best brands, provide a premium set-up and take the time to find the best fit for them. This combination of superior quality repairs, sales and support places Vanguard at the pinnacle of specialist brass and woodwind services available in New Zealand. It’s no wonder that brands such as P. Mauriat, Carol Brass, Bambu and Backun trust Vanguard Orchestral to be their exclusive retailer in New Zealand.
Integral to the Vanguard Orchestral brand has always been a view of itself as one member of a diverse and dynamic New Zealand music community. Sharing knowledge of and passion for brass and woodwind music has been a constant in the Vanguard story, primarily through sponsorship of awards, festivals and conferences throughout the country. This more public community involvement has been complimented through less obvious yet more frequent commitments: talking to school and university groups, hosting workshop tours and generally encouraging the future of brass and woodwind musicians and leaders.
Vanguard Orchestral has a heritage that is both strong and vibrant, built on a reputation for excellence that has been constantly upheld and passed down.
