Selmer was quite late getting into the sax making business. Like many instrument dealers and manufacture, those that did not have a proprietary saxophone product to sell, but wanted to get in on the budding saxophone craze, bought "Stencil" horns from the big manufacturers. Stencils were horns that were either the same model, custom models, or watered down models made by a company, but with the engraved name chosen by the client to sell under their own product line.SearjeantSax said:why does it have Selmer engraved on it then??
i thought the conn selmer relationship was quite recent.
