Some years ago it was said that the the holy trinity of Southern California trumpet gurus were the three Bobs.

Bob Reeves for mouthpieces

Bob Malone for trumpet design/modification (last I heard exclusively Yamaha)

Robb (almost Bob) Stewart for repair/restoration/vintage.

I've been to all three.

a little robb history.


around 1983 or so i bought a used 1968 Elkhart LB Bach which i still have and love. robb was working out of his pad in i think reseda. i dropped my horn off to have a saddle put on the first valve so reversing the tubes was necessary.
i found the receipt a few years back. $35 was the total.

the last time i saw robb about 6-7 years ago i took him the receipt and he chuckled saying that'd be about $175 now. we also had a good talk about larry minick another repairman fuoriclasse like robb.
