His instruments, accepted nationally in music schools and by professional musicians internationally, were made of seasoned wood salvaged from old furniture Fuller purchased in second-hand stores.

The 1909 Dubuque City Directory and the 1913 Dubuque and Dubuque County Directory stated that this company was located at 1697 Clay.
