Originally established in 1976 for doing brass and woodwind instrument repairs, Bremner Music Centre Ltd. was set up in New Plymouth, New Zealand, to provide the local community and the country with top quality instrument services. Eventually Trevor & Betty Bremner upgraded to selling top quality musical instruments, including brass, woodwind, strings, guitars and drums.
In 2001 when Trevor & Betty moved to Brisbane, Australia, when shelved BMC Ltd. to focus on the now popular sshhmute brand. As the mute brand’s popularity grew, they shifted back to New Plymouth to focus on the mutes and to expand the mute range. Now Bremner Music is proud to be the New Zealand & Australian distributor for Smith-Watkins Musical Instruments and Monster Oil Valve Oil, as well as managing the operations for sshhmute.
