Steve,

Not alot of info on these. No real Brillhart ser# charts out there. I'd say 60's but not particularly rare. These can play just as nice as the Tonalin counterparts if you find a good one.

1967. Specifically March 1, 1967

The tonalins and the ebolins are the exact same mouthpiece. Only the colorant used was changed.

it is more fun this way. Actually these Brilharts are pretty nice for Tenor. I have a tonalite,well centered. I think the older facings are more open that stated in the current lists.

The later ones use the date as the serial number. The older ones have four digit serial numbers. The ones with the easy to figure out date are from Carlsbad if I remember correctly.

What about a five digit number? My tenor Ebolin is 62437. I can't see a likely date anywhere in there.
