Bach trombone serial number dating chart Free live horny chatroom
Note: From 1987 on, the two-digit prefix number plus 50 will give you the year of manufacture on all Conn products.Also, the serial numbers from 1981 - 1987 for the Brasswinds are for student trumpets and cornets only.As such, the serial number lists compiled below have been based on the visual observation of engraving patterns and other instrument details that I’ve cross-referenced against catalog illustrations and other available historical information.I believe that, while exact dates may never be able to be accurately verified for a specific serial number, the general progression of these lists is defensible and represents Reynolds instruments through the company’s history.The log book shows the serial numbers jumping around quite a bit for the Selmer/Adolphe Sax saxophones. Even so, its possible from this record to assemble a basic serial number chart for these instruments. Using serial numbers to identify the exact production dates of Reynolds instruments is inherently inaccurate given the lack of published records to corroborate with.

This page contains serial number lists (well, one list for now and hopefully more eventually) to help you estimate the approximate date of manufacture of your trombone.
I hope to add to and continually update this list - please do let me know if you spot any errors or omissions.
