This company is devoted to the manufacture of brass instruments with the generic brand Stomvi. With only 28 he (Vicente Honorato Ibáñez - 1952) created his own company devoted to the fine jewelry manufactory. At 30 he began his new project: Brass instrument manufactory. He was inspired for many professionals that believed in his creative ideas. He applied all his jeweler knowledge in the handcrafted manufactory of his Stomvi instruments. The similar story happened in the XVI and XVII centuries in Nuremberg, where the musical instruments workshops developed from the jewelers and craftsmen of that time.

They that know him say that he has gifted musical ear and a great sensibility to perceive and appreciate the best tunings. In the inner part of his factory in Xirivella, Valencia, Spain, daily he receives famous music personalities and they interchange opinions that share and shape the big Stomvi project.
