It is not my main horn anymore... One of the major reasons for this purcahse was that Selmer planned to enter into saxophone manufacturing.The Buescher factory was already tooled for saxophone production and a great deal of past advertising and goodwill had gone into the Buescher saxophone since the 1920's. Furthermore, a dealer network was already established. In 1963, it was mostly a turn-key operation that Selmer felt they could greatly expand upon. The Selmer board and shareholders were also in acqusition mode.
They had already purcahsed Harry Peddler & Sons in 1959 and acquired the Vincent Bach Corporation, Mount Vernon, New York in September of 1961. Production barely skipped a beat after the acquisition. In fact, Selmer retained most all of the Buescher factory workers.
The post-Selmer Buescher saxophones are essentially Selmer Bundy saxophones. The Bundy line was marketed at the same time and the instruments were made side-by-side using many of the same parts. Being dated to 1965, this saxophone was made shortly after this acquisition occurred.
So although this is labeled a "Bundy" Horn, the parts shared between the Buescher Aristocrat IV and this make them practically identical. This item is in the category "Musical Instruments & Gear\Wind & Woodwind\Band & Orchestral\Saxophones".
