June 2019 – December 2019
After a period of discussions about the best way for BBICO to promote the b# brand, in early 2019 Alun Hughes Director of BBICO said he was looking at developing a high-end range of musical instrument accessories under his own brand. A meeting was arranged at the beginning of June 2019 to discuss the concept. At that meeting it was agreed that we would dual brand the range under his Edgware by BBICO brand with the Qualkem Logo on the rear as the manufacturer. By December 2019 we had developed a 6-product range which was launched at the NAMM Show in California USA in January 2020, aimed at the US retail market and the military bands other than the UK.
The range consisted of:
- A range of 3 Natural Valve Oils, all safe if swallowed and don’t carry any CLP symbols.
- A unique Trombone Water made with Purified Water and an added Corrosion Inhibitor.
- A revolutionary Hypochlorous based sanitiser spray.
- Our tried and tested Instrument Soak in a 1L bottle.
