Mike Corrigan, President and founder of B.A.C. Horn Doctor, has plunged into this industry full force. After graduating from Red Wing Tech. College for Band Instrument Repair, he appren-ticed for four years at S.E. Shires Company crafting some of the world’s finest brass instru-ments. Working at Shires and being cross trained in nearly every aspect of abrication, Mike gained an abundance of knowledge of how quality brass instruments are made. Mike has consulted and fabricated valve sections for Greenhoe Valves and Components and studied construction of historic brass instruments with makers Barclay, Seripinoff, and Munkwitz. He continues his know-ledge working with and consulting at Calicchio Musical Instruments on developing projects.
