Yes, I guess I did. I couldn't see past these post-Buescher Bundy's I have queued up for work........ I just couldn't help but vent about the irony, as misplaced as it was....Doing a bit of a rewrite of my original comment:
JfW, the reason why I posted in this forum is because the Bundy on page 8 in the 1964 Selmer catalog was made by Keilwerth. I owned one. It was a nice horn. Semi-recently Helen discovered that the Bundy alto and tenor from that same time were made by Dörfler & Jörka. Helen's got a very nice write-up on them here. These horns will be stamped "Made in Germany" and the baritones had a Keilwerth serial number. I think there were a couple French-made baris in there, too, but not made by Selmer. @Helen can comment about that.
The Bundy line was produced from 1927 to 1983, according to Wikipedia, and I think I've seen earlier ones stamped/engraved, "Geo. M. Bundy."
In other words, I think you cast your net a little too wide .
I figured you might remember. It can be pretty obscure in the sea of D&J info however. That said, yes, ostensibly their baris were supposed to come from France. But sadly Uwe Ladwig never was able to ID their source. I'm not sure what happened to all the original D&J records--if JK got them, or if they stayed with Josef Dörfler.Yah. I got that. Wasn't there a French company that also made baris for D&J or did I hallucinate that?
