Head of Box Hill Institute - Music Degrees, Tim Weir plays a Temby prototype lead horn at Dizzy's Jazz Club late last year. "I liked a lot about the horn and think there's some great stuff already in there. It will be really cool to see where this one ends up! I'd love another chance to play on it," This horn is now ready for sale $2900 (plus MAW valves if you want to free up the blow even more, and have even better connectivity between notes). Test play at The Music Place Sth Melbourne, or contact me on 1300 729899 to organise a test play. Cheers, David ... See MoreSee Less

Winter 2015, In the beautiful St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne Australia, Adam Simmons - Inderbinen Soprano Saxophone & Nick Tsiavos - Double Bass play excerpts from their wonderful new album - Sixteen Alleluias, available at fatrain.bandcamp.com/album/sixteen-alleluias.

"It was an enormous pleasure and honour to hear and feel the beautifully raw, serene, respectful, poignant and tonally adventurous performance of these extraordinary works, by an equally extraordinary pair of musicians that have such a closeness of musical connectivity. What a fabulous experience thank you Adam and Nick" David Temby - Temby Australia, Partner of Inderbinen Handmade Musical Instruments Switzerland/Australia www.temby.com


Alleluia.

An ancient word, it has moved beyond its original liturgical usage to one that has a web of meanings woven through it. It encompasses the light of joy and elation. It never fails as a succinct and useful form of punctuation. And as we fall into the depths, seeking hope against the dark in a final resigned acceptance of all that will come to pass, the word hovers close in our consciousness.

Adam and I have been working together in various situations the past ten years, mainly in my 'Liminal' quintet and its larger manifestations, yet we were eager to explore what was possible in a distilled form of the work we have collaborated on - just Adam and his soprano sax, and me with my bass. An opportunity arose in late 2014 when the Art Gallery of Ballarat invited the two of us to perform at 'EIKON', their exhibition of Byzantine Iconography. I suggested we explore a collection of Alleluias in their proper and plagal forms, as an entry point into our idea of developing a performing duo, and this is the result.

Alex HutchinsonI think that Maurie Backuns greatest "asset " is Eddie Daniels, for obvious reasons.

New 6 year warranty!!! ... nearly 2 decades of Temby instruments manufacture, and almost 0% warranty issues, in fact, we cant remember if there has ever been one. So we may as well double the warranty from now on. 6 year warranty on all Temby instruments - that has to be the best in the business for sure!!!

Check out the new website, we hope you like it - www.temby.com
