“This trumpet seems to have been made especially for me.
Trumpeter Jan Hollander, member of the Metropole Orchestra, also plays a Van Laar instrument. I just tell Hub what I want and he makes it. He knows exactly what I mean. He’s just around the corner and that is very practical. In the past I had to fly to Los Angeles to get my trumpet repaired. Many famous trumpeters, such as Chuck Findley, Arturo Sandoval and Eric Vloeimans, play a Van Laar. Recently I played on a Van Laar instrument belonging to one of my pupils and was astounded to find that it was better than my own!
It’s just amazing that Hub constantly gets better and better.” Jan Oosthof
