Larry Ramirez had a fascinating career in music!  As a trumpet player he landed his dream job designing instruments for many of his childhood heroes!  While working for LeBlanc, Larry was assigned to repair the instruments of many of the company’s top endorsers.  Over time he developed friendships with musicians such as Miles Davis, Clark Terry and Maynard Ferguson.  When these artists requested a custom change or new instrument, Larry was assigned the task.  He worked with countless artists during his long career and always was proud of the fact that many of those he worked with became close friends.
