What's new(s) on the Oberloh.com...


February 17, 2017

I have been really bad! Finally got some website updating taken care of.

I have added some cool tubas and will be doing more updates soon. Sorry, its just been Steve and myself these days and the repairs come first.

Its been a busy winter. lots of big projects have kept us busy. We are on the lookout for a new Technician to bring on board and are still considering an apprentice. Looking forward to the spring.


February 26, 2015

Well, its about time! Finally got some website updating taken care of.

I have added loads of trombones and a few euphoniums and tubas to the sales pages

Its been a busy winter. Steve and I have both had some medical problems but we are getting a leg up on things and are finally getting the shop back in order. Thanks to all who have been so patient this past year.


April 3, 2014

Time again for some website updating.

I have added a bunch of trumpets and a few cornets to the trumpet sales page

The shop is starting to toy with the idea of bringing in two new apprentices. If you or someone you know has an interest and is able to commit to the demands involved, this might be something to consider. You must be able bodied, between the ages of 19 and 27 years of age and willing to seriously devote the time and energy needed to develop the skills required in this trade that will lead to a full time position with Oberloh Woodwind and Brass Works. I'm not looking for someone who just wants a hobby or to dink around with tools and instruments, while they are trying to figure out what they want to do with their life. So, if you are seriously interested in this trade and making it your lifes vocation, give me a call. Dan'l


January 23, 2014

Wow, have I fallen down on the job with this page. Lots has happened since I last posted here. Paul Avery has moved on to bigger and better things in his life and we wish him all the best of fortune. Its back to just Steve and myself. This spring Stevo will have been with the shop for nineteen years!


September 16, 2011

Where did the summer go? I added a bunch of trumpets to the sales pages along with a couple tubas, nice stuff. Its about time!!!! I plan to post some more trombones, an oboe and maybe a sax or two in the coming days. Hey, look me up on FaceBook. Happy Fall!

June 14, 2011

WelI guess I should start doing a little website updating (about time!)

I am finally recovering from my most recent heath battle (lung stuff) and am breathing better then I have in a long time. I have been hard at it completing a lot of big jobs and am really looking forward to wrapping up a lot of long overdue projects; tending to the website is one of them. I still have a good deal of work to do with updating the sales pages and will be on it soon. Thanks for the patience with my laps in maintenance. I recently started doing some video stuff, lots of fun. I have created my first new page for the website in a long time. Hope you find it of interest. Happy Spring!

April 15, 2010

Added a few trumpets and cornets to the sales pages along with a couple tubas. I plan to post a few double horns (Conn 8-Ds) and some trombones very soon.

The tuba overhaul page in the gallery had a few broken links to some images (page 2), they are now corrected. I have no idea how it happened.

April 5, 2010

Its been a very busy winter in the shop, lots of projects nearing completion.

I managed to finally wrap up the restoration of this Hirsbrunner BBb tuba for our friend Alan C. in Florida. I tell ya, we have some of the best clients. They are so patient and understanding when it comes to these big projects. Dave S. in California will be getting his big Holton tuba this spring and I hope to Have another Holton 345 completed latespring/early summer for Dale P. in Colorado. Added some trombones to the sales pages. I have some cornets, french horns and a couple tubas to list and will do so in the coming day or two. Happy Spring! Dan'l

November 6, 2009

Added a bunch more trumpets and a few cornets to the sales pages. We have had abusy fall season. We are still playing catch-up, addressing a lot of overhauls and restorations. The Pacific North West getspretty dark and damp this time of year.

As you can see in the images below, the shop is reflacting the season.

October 27, 2009

August 27, 2009

Added a few trumpets to the sales pages along with a number of tubas. Busy, busy, busy! I have not been tending to the mouthpiece pages and have really dropped the ball. I will try and find some time to get that cleaned up and back on track. Fall will be here soon so I will just have to do my best to square things away. Dan

June 3, 2009

Added a few trumpets to the sales pages, time to get back to work. Dan'l!

May 4, 2009

added a little to the trumpet and tuba pages and plan to add more to the trombone and sax sales pages as soon as time allows. Happy Spring!!

February 10, 2009

Hi All! Well it has been a busy winter for us in the shop. The move transition had to slow down and allow us time to work on horns. We will try and finish the remaining work on the shop this coming summer. We did finally get the new heating/air conditioning going just last week. December and January were pretty chilly around here with the wicked cold weather and flooding we have had in the Pacific North West. I managed to spend a little time on the web-site and added a few photo essay pages in the gallery along with some updates in the sales section. I still have more to do and will try to stay on it as best as I can. Cheers!

August 14, 2008

As many who have visited the shop over the years know, we out grew the space some time ago. On July 8th Daniel Oberloh started to work building out and preparing a new somewhat larger and more comfortable space in the north end of seattle. After working non-stop, on the 28th, Steve, Paul and Dan started the relocation of the South end shops contents, it took a full week to complete the task. Since the 7th of August we have continued to work on the space installing our machinery and other equipment. With the much appreciated help of Family and Friends we hope to be settled in very soon. We will take care of web site details once the dust clears. Thanks to everyone for being so patient.

March 26, 2008

I'm getting better all the time. We are happy to anounce the addition of our new Apprentice Paul Avery. Paul came up from Florida in December in hopes of adding to and improving on his existing skills while providing Stevo and I with a badly needed extra set of hands. We hope to clean him up soon so pictures can be taken and added to the staff page. Oh yeah, I added a some nice trumpets, french horns and a few alto saxophones for good measure to the sales pages. Don't hesitate to share ideas or to let me know if there is anything more I can add.Enjoy. Dan'l

October 4, 2007

I found the time to work updating the sales pages and who knows, maybe we will add a little more to the gallery. I added some tubas and euphoniums. I will be working on the trombone sale page real soon. Thanks ya all for being so patient. The Doc has been doing a great job and the traction and therapy have been helping a lot. I am not totally out of the woods with my spinal issues but I am feeling much better and hope to get cought up on the overhauls and major repairs as soon as I am able. Dan'l

Custom 1930s BBbYork tuba reconfiguration and restoration completed by Dan this summer.


Dan and Steve have a great many instruments to rebuild and/or customize between now and the fall. We will do our best to assist those with standard/ general repairs and maintenance with our typical quick turn around time.



August, 2007

Well, we had a bit of a set back this past month. Dan is a bit gimpy. He has been having neck and back problems that have slowed him down and made working on the big horns difficult. Fear not, he is slowly recovering and with a bit of patience will be back up to speed. Stevo has been a real trooper as he always is helping pick up the slack during a very busy summer while Dan recovers.


May 24, 2007

I finally found time to post a good number of images of the Conn factory from my collection. I thought they were very interesting, I hope you do too.
