World class brand
Lode told 4BR: "Having played on the Alliance mouthpieces for a very long time, it's wonderful to be able to promote this world class brand as an artist."
In response, CEO of Alliance Brass, Stephen Wick, added: "It's fitting that a brand that initially found its roots creating a range of mouthpieces for Besson brass instruments should continue that relationship with two outstanding performers.
We are delighted to have Tim and Lode join the Alliance family."
