The History of Tuck's Music Store
In 1949 I was given trumpet lessons in Danville, Illinois at the Kamp Music store. I was 8 years old. My mother sacrificially bought me my first horn-a Cleveland brass cornet for $135 and I advanced to High School using that same horn until I eventually was selected to occupy "First Chair" trumpet in the Oakwood Township High School band. I eventually lost interest in music as most teenagers do and put the horn away-until 1961 when I went to college at what is now Evangel University https://www.evangel.edu/. formerly called Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri. I picked up my horn playing again and began to travel to several evangelical churches and did a lot of solo work using that same cornet. It was in need of repairs by then so I traded it in for a Conn Constellation Trumpet-model 6B29. A beautiful full sounding instrument ideal for the kind of music I was playing -semi-professionally. Several years later I became interested in playing again as I had not used the trumpet at all for a long time. After engaging in buying and selling on the internet, I found that I had a talent for overhauling and repairing trumpets and trombones. I now have a fully equipped repair shop and offer our services and talents to be used in the Greater Glens Falls area-with sales included. Tuck lives with his wife of 51 years, Nancy, in Hudson Falls, NY. You can read more of our History on "Our History" page.
