Since November 2016, Russell Gilmour has been hand engraving natural trumpet garlands for David Staff's instruments.

Russell's first encounter with engraving came while working with Graham Nicholson on a replica of a Steinmetz Horn. Russell then attended an inspiring workshop given by Samantha Marsden of the Hand Engravers Association of Great Britain. Since this workshop, Russell has been using hand engraving techniques while making engravings to adorn the garlands of historical brass instruments.
