The Ravel Story:
Ravel Musical Instruments' company name pays homage to renowned French Impressionist composer, Maurice Ravel. Just as Ravel sought "tonal color and variety of sound and instrumentation" in his music, the Ravel brands group seeks tonal color and variety in its musical instrument offerings.
Ravel Musical Instruments' passion, just like Maurice Ravel's, is to inspire performance and playing passion among musicians, regardless of age. Ravel not only inspires musicians to play, but also offers high quality instruments with great tonal qualities and advanced features, affordable for all.
All Ravel Musical Instruments are hand crafted and undergo rigorous design and testing. Instruments are tested and re-tested both overseas and at Ravel's U.S. facility. Ravel believes strongly that pre-production design work and testing, in advance of actual production, helps assure and guarantee the quality and consistency demanded.
Backed by over 63 years in the music business, and staffed by real musicians and technicians, Ravel offers a one-year customer assurance warranty and product guarantee on each Ravel instrument. Further information is available at www.ravelband.com.
