  1. Flute & Piccolo
    I got a Gemeinhardt Flute W/ Hard Case at an estate sale (Plus a few other beauties)... But this one says only... GEMEINHARDT ELKHART IND. A88 (5, 6 or 8)... I can't really tell the last. But A88 are very clear. No other markings anywhere. I can't find anything like it online. Do you know...
  2. Conn
    While this deals with Clarinets, it does deal more with Conn in general than Clarinets. Why does one Clarinet, #384, have Elkhart & Worcester, ( http://orgs.usd.edu/nmm/Clarinets/Conn/DoubleWallClarinets/ConnDblWallClarinets1890.html ) And one Clarinet later, #385, have just Elkhart? (...
  3. Pads and Resonators
    Hello, I recently purchased a Buescher Elkhart 30a tenor with serial number 56*** from around the 1920s. The pads are sketchy and need to be replaced. I cannot confirm that they are snap-ons. Can anyone guarantee this before I delve deeper into it? Thanks in advance, Brady
  4. Buescher
    Hello! This is actually my first post here even though I've been visiting for years. I am looking in to buying this tenor that is listed as an Elkhart tenor. The woman who is selling it doesn't know much about it but she tells me it is a Buescher 1917 model. She gave me the serial number also...
  5. Clarinet
    Hello all, I'm a senior in high school. I've played clarinet since 5th grade and I also double on sax. I recently bought a Selmer Signet Special wooden clarinet from my aunt for $50. I never really paid attention to the mouthpiece that came with it until now. I'm looking at it and I can very...
  6. Bb Tenor
    I am usually an Alto and Bari player but am looking for a decent Tenor. I recently came across 2 for a pretty cheap price. One is an Elkhart Tenor, serial number 90516. The other is a Buescher Aristocrat, serial number 469144. I believe the Aristocrat is from 1965-1970. I do not, however...
  7. Conn
    Hi, I've been awarded the task of identifying this old sax. It's hard to do a search when you don't know what to call it. I don't play and I know nothing about the sax. It's in a Conn case, and to my ignorant eye, looks like some of the Conn photos I've seen around here. Here are some photos...
  8. Flute & Piccolo
    I bought a used flute recently and I'd like to know more about it. The flute head is silver and has 'silver head' and 55 stamped on it. It has a B foot. The body is stamped E. L. Deford Elkhart underneath a diamond with ELD inside of it. However, there is no serial number I can find at all...

  12. What to Buy & Why: Saxophones
    Hey there, I've been searching the forum but didn't find answer I'm a beginner who is looking for an Alto Sax. I've been looking around, played the Elkhart and the Yamaha 275, and the Selmer prelude. I've also heard about the Jupiter 500 1) Which one would you recommend why? 2) Which is better...
  13. Buescher
    Hi, There is a tenor sax for sale on Ebay which puzzles me. It labeled as a Buescher Elkhart Tenor saxophone with a serial number 27188. I am wondering if it s really a Buesher or not. At the very least it seems to me be a Buescher Stencil prior to when Buescher bought the Elkhart Band...

  15. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Hello, I just got an old sax and I don't have any idea about this horn. I think it is a C Melody but I would like to know what manufactured it was made by. It smells like old tools and it needs urgently new pads, corks and polish. So I dont't know if it is worth to repair it. I have studied sax...
