Scherl & Roth string instruments continue the rich legacy that began with a long line of respected German craftsmen. It was such a craftsman, with his eye on America, who laid the foundation for one of the most respected names in stringed instruments.Heinrich Roth was a seventh-generation violinmaker who worked with his father, Ernst Heinrich Roth, and his brother, Albert, in the family shop in Markneukirchen, Germany. Through the early 20th Century, the family had built a reputation for making fine string instruments and sold many to visiting Americans. In 1922, Heinrich was persuaded by his American customers and friends to come to the United States, bringing the experience and reputation of Roth instruments with him.After a few brief jobs in violin departments of other companies, Roth’s expertise led him to manage the Simson & Frey violin department, where his reputation grew throughout the United States and abroad. In 1932, upon the retirement of Herman Simsom, Roth teamed with Max Scherl to buy the Simson & Frey firm. They renamed it Scherl & Roth. In 1938, the company moved from New York to Cleveland, Ohio. After World War II, interest in string instruments bloomed as educators recognized the importance of developing school orchestra. Aiming to provide students with the finest instruments possible, Roth brought young, skilled violinmakers from Europe to his Cleveland violin shop. Under Roth’s guidance, these craftsmen established the finishing and adjusting techniques and standards to provide fine, affordable school instruments in large quantities. Those standards later became the basis for those adopted by Music Educator’s National Conference. It wasn’t long before Scherl & Roth became one of the largest string shops in the world as well as the nation’s largest supplier of string instruments and accessories. The entire Scherl & Roth line became recognized as the preferred choice of many leading educators.Today, Scherl & Roth is the traditional leader in beginning student instruments, having established the shop adjustment process over fifty years ago. The bodice selection and adjustment process creates a more forgiving instrument and lends itself to getting students off to a good start. Highly appropriate for beginning rental inventory, dealers and educators appreciate the long term value of having Scherl & Roth instruments to pass from one beginning class to another. Scherl & Roth instruments display the same standards Heinrich Roth brought over from Germany. The instruments remain a favorite of educators and students for their sound and construction, qualities honed and passed down through many generations."

Web: www.conn-selmer.com. Henri and Alexandre Selmer won wide acclaim for instrument design at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis. Today, Selmer (Paris) is recognized throughout the world as the defining producer of professional saxophones and it clarinet and trumpet models are found in professionals’ hands worldwide. Today’s newest “Reference” model saxophones are compared favorably to the best Selmer (Paris) has ever made. The new “Bird” series of collector’s editions continue to spark the imagination of saxophone players around the world.For well over a century, Selmer (Paris) continues to operate under the guidance of the Selmer family. The Selmer (Paris) name is, above all, linked with the saxophone, which represents more than half of it business. After the Cigar Cutter, the Balanced Action, the Mark VI, Mari VII all still sought-after models despite their ages the current Series II, Series III and Reference models dominate the world of saxophone.Clarinets, the first instruments made by the company, continue to impress the most critical of players. The current models (Rècital, Signature, Arthea) have already made their mark in clarinet history. Moreover, wind section clarinets (Mib, Alto, Basse, Contralto, Contrebasse) can be considered as the world’s most successful instruments of this kind. The “Brasses” department shows its innovation with the latest launching of baroque trumpets and new Sib and Ut (900TT, Chorus 80J), which cover both the orchestra and jazz worlds, serving a variety of musicians’ needs. Selmer (Paris) also provides an extensive array of professional-level accessories, including its famous clarinet and saxophone mouthpieces."

Since 1918, Selmer USA woodwind instruments have been the leading choice of band directors for students and schools. Complementing the Selmer (Paris) offering of professional saxophones, clarinets and trumpets, Selmer USA instruments include high-quality flutes, clarinet, double reeds and saxophones at various price points. In 1918 Alexandre Selmer of the Paris firm awarded George Bundy the rights to distribute Selmer products in the United States. Having a strong position in the professional clarinet market, Bundy next set his sights on flutes. In 1920 Bundy hired George W. Haynes, the first in a family famous for flute making, to design the Selmer flute. Louis Lot flutes became the rage with professionals in the late 1920s. Selmer responded by offering a copy of a Louis Lot owned by Charles Selmer (first flutist with the Opera Comique and the Concerts Colonne Orchestras). To cement Selmer’s position in flutes, Bundy brought a young flute craftsman named Kurt Gemeinhardt to the United States from Markneukirchen, Germany. Bundy recognized the need to leave New York City in order to expand his manufacturing operations. By the 1920s Elkhart, Indiana, had established a reputation as the band instrument capital. Drawing on a skilled labor pool, the company was moved to Elkhart. American industry in the 1940s prospered from advancements in efficient and economical production methods and the newly developed field of plastics. Selmer combined these factors in 1948 to produce one of the first commercially successful molded clarinets the Bundy Resonite® model 1400. The 1400 was patterned after the famous Selmer (Paris) BT clarinet, used by such great artists as Benny Goodman. The Bundy Resonite clarinet launched a revolution in affordable, high quality musical instruments and established Selmer as an industry leader. The 1400 passed the one million-units-sold milestone in 1978 and continued to launch musical careers.The band instrument industry grew rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s as demand increased due to a “baby boom” in the number of school age children and the proliferation of school music programs throughout the United States. Selmer seized the opportunity to reinforce its position as an industry leader by skillful acquisitions including Vincent Bach Corporation (1961), Buescher Band Instrument Company (1963), Brilhart mouthpieces (1966), Lesher double reed instruments (1967), Glaesel String Instrument Service (1977), Ludwig Drum Company (1981), and Wm. Lewis & Son (1995). In 2002 The Selmer Company and C.G. Conn merged to form Conn-Selmer, Inc. and the Selmer name returned to its roots as the brand leader in woodwind instruments and close association with its Selmer (Paris) cousin. With new models for professional, student and amateur players, Selmer continues to grow in its position as the first name in woodwinds."

1,597 "VINCENT BACH, a division of Conn-Selmer, Inc." "P.O. Box 310, Elkhart IN 46515-0310. Tel: (574) 522-1675. Fax: (574) 295-0334. Email: custserv@conn-selmer.com. Web: www.conn-selmer.com. Vincent Bach, in combining his unique talents as both a musician and an engineer, created brass instruments that remain the sound choice of artists worldwide. Born Vincent Schrotenbach in Vienna during 1890, initial musical training was received on the violin. However, young Vincent preferred the majestic sounds of the trumpet and eventually switched. Also displaying an aptitude in science, Vincent graduated from the Maschinenbauschule with an engineering degree. His heart remained in music, leaving an engineering career for an uncertain future in music. Success soon followed as he toured throughout Europe, adopting the stage name of Vincent Bach while in England.Through a series of events, Vincent arrived in New York City during World War I with $5.00 in his pockets. Initial vaudeville theater work was secured through connections with Oscar and Arthur Hammerstein. A letter in 1914 to conductor Karl Muck resulted in an audition and a position with the Boston Symphony. The following season Vincent served as first trumpet in the Metropolitan Opera House opera and ballet orchestras, performing in the American premiere of Stravinsky’s Petroushka and Firebird. While on tour in Pittsburgh, a repairman convinced Vincent that he could improve his mouthpiece. After ruining the mouthpiece, Vincent experienced difficulty in finding a suitable replacement. He now recognized the need by brass players for high-quality mouthpieces. Initially Vincent remodeled old mouthpieces and made new ones in the back of the Selmer Music Store in New York City.In 1918 he invested $300 for a foot-operated lathe and office at 11 East 14th Street and set about the business of making mouthpieces, continuing part-time at the Rivoli Theater. Offers of $50 were received for Bach mouthpieces. (Mouthpieces at the time sold for $1.50.) From that point on the business grew rapidly. The first Bach ads appeared in The Metronome during the early 1920s. Not one to be discouraged by an initial slow sales response, Vincent changed the ad headline to read “How To Become A Wizard On The Cornet Without Practicing,” to which he received over $500 in orders during the first seven days. The first trumpets were produced in 1924. Musicians frequently commented, “This is a real ‘Stradivarius’ of a trumpet,” hence the brand name Bach Stradivarius. Trombones followed in 1928, a risky time for Vincent to expand with the stock market crash, bank failures, and the ensuing Great Depression.However, a strong demand remained for Bach instruments and mouthpieces due to their superior design, high quality, and prompt service.During his career Vincent served as president of the National Association of Band Instrument Manufacturers (NABIM). In 1961, at the age of 71, the company was placed for sale. Despite receiving 12 other offers for the company, some with even higher bids, Vincent chose The Selmer Company. Having developed a close relationship with Selmer and George Bundy over the years, he felt that Selmer would best expand upon his foundations. All tooling and machinery was moved to Selmer’s operations in Elkhart, Indiana, with Vincent assisting in the training. Original designs and blueprints have been carefully preserved in manufacturing the sound choice of professionals. When The Selmer Company was merge with C.G. Conn to form Conn-Selmer, Inc., commitment to Mr. Bach vision was not only recognized, but strictly adhered.In 1965 Vincent Bach wrote, “My recent visit to your Bach plant surprised me. I did not expect it to be so well-organized and expertly managed. You have an excellent staff and competent artisans who appear to be very capable and intensely interested in their work. They are very successfully interpreting my drawings and eager to continue the Bach Tradition.” This testimony to the commitment to deliver Mr. Bach’s vision with every Bach instrument produced continues to this day. Over 30 years after his death, Conn-Selmer has had the unique opportunity to examine the entire process of Bach instrument production as if looking through the eyes of the man himself, by revisiting his drawings and plans. By devoting its manufacturing techniques to the types of processes Mr. Bach recommended, Conn-Selmer continues to create instruments that were precisely what Vincent Bach envisioned and what today’s players continue to demand."

The history of Vito band instruments, dates to the last months of World War II and a chance meeting between Léon Leblanc and Vito Pascucci.Born in Kenosha, Vito Pascucci showed a marked interest in music and played cornet in the Kenosha High School band. He became fascinated with the construction and design of musical instruments and learned their repair as a summer apprentice at the Frank Holton Company and later operated an instrument-repair shop at his brother’s music store.In 1943 Pascucci was called into the armed forces. His instrument-repair skills were rewarded when he was assigned as a trumpeter and repairman to Army Field Bands, then to the Army Air Corps Band, led by Glenn Miller. He began with the Miller band in New Haven, Connecticut, then traveled with them to Europe. Miller’s untimely death put an end to those plans, but when the band was sent to newly liberated France, Vito paid a visit to G. Leblanc Cie., and his guide that day was Léon Leblanc. After service discharge in 1946 Pascucci returned to Kenosha, where Mr. Leblanc asked him to establish a foothold for the French company in America.In the 1950s, due to an ever-growing school market, demand for Leblanc instruments in the United States was far greater than the French concern could meet, so Leblanc began producing plastic-bodied clarinets in Kenosha.The Vito line of musical instruments was thus born, thrusting Leblanc to the forefront of the student clarinet market. In 1951 construction of Leblanc’s Kenosha factory was completed, a plant that to this day provides a model for the industry in its modern equipment, efficient operation and attractive appearance. Ever-increasing production called for the factory’s subsequent expansion in 1953, 1960 and 1966 and 1999.In 2004 Leblanc was acquired by Conn-Selmer, Inc. a division of Steinway Musical Instruments (NYSE:LVB).

JWilliam Lewis (1835-1902) achieved initial recognition as a professional violinist and teacher in Chicago. One of his foremost students was Maud Powell, one of the first American-born concert violinists who was also a student of famed French violinist and teacher Charles Dancla. In 1870 William joined the Root-Cady Music Company. Concerned by the lack of quality instruments and service for his students and colleagues, William formed the Chicago Music Company in 1874 with his partners Newell and Gibbs. Located in the heart of the Chicago business district, players from the finest symphony orchestras in the world would often visit Lewis’ shop to have their own instruments appraised or serviced. Amati, Guarneri, and Stradivarius were commonly in inventory. He later renamed the business Wm. Lewis Company (1886) and Wm. Lewis & Son (1896). Fred Lewis succeeded his father as president of the company. Many current players and teachers played Lewis instruments earlier in their careers and are loath to give them up except to the most deserving of their own students. Today, instruments from the Wm. Lewis & Son workshop represent the finest instruments in the Conn-Selmer string line. Combining high performance with high value, Lewis instruments are hand-finished and finely adjusted to provide the best performance experience for advancing players."
