The Regent range of brass instruments was named after the Boosey & Hawkes head offices in Regent Street and was one of the company's top selling brands in the 1970s and 80s. The range was primarily aimed at learners and amateur players, and competitive pricing was always a priority. Durability was also important and the company prided itself on the solid construction of their Regent instruments, many of which are still in use today.
