Ted's Work

He designed industrial electronic instrumentation for Delta Controls Corporation; in Shreveport, La for 36 years. He was a graduate of Louisiana Tech University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering.


When no one else was listening, he played the saxophone, flute, and recorder. He also had a Casio DH-200 digital horn, a Casio DH-280 digital horn, a Yamaha WX-11 and WX-5 wind controller, a Yamaha VL70m synth, and an Alesis NanoSynth that he had a lot of fun with. He collected simple flutes and recorders.

He also played flute and Baritone Saxophone in the Prevailing Winds, a community band in the Shreveport / Bossier City area.

Before he passed, he was well known for fixing broken Casio DH-100, DH-200, DH-500 , and DH-800 digital horns. The link to his old repair shop is here. We no longer accept horns for repairs.

If you are into MIDI wind controllers, check out this horn case for a Yahamah WX-5 with VL70-m. Or this case he built for his Akai EWI5000
