We have been notified of the death of Hub Van Laar, the famed Dutch trumpet maker. He was 58.

Among thousands of creations – some 300 a year, he estimated – he fashioned a made-to-measure trumpet for Ibrahim Maalouf, specifically for the quarter-tones in his compositions. And another for Jon Lewis in Star Wars.

All components for his instruments were sourced in the Netherlands and Germany.
