Selmer Bundy Ii Alto Saxophone Serial Numbers [2021]



Look on the back of the horn underneath the thumb rest or the left side of the bell just above or below the band. You should find a serial number. Bunny IIs are well documented and can be identified by year. Saxworx.com has a chart with serial numbers and years made.




Selmer Bundy Ii Alto Saxophone Serial Numbers



Hi Average Joe, I hate to ask about serial numbers, but I can't find much mine. It a Selmer Bundy II #895986. If it is just the 800,000's I should be focusing on, then I guess early eighties and worth approx.$200. Sorry, I haven't any experience with this!


Despite purchasing all of the assets of the Adolphe Sax Company in 1928, Selmer did not start selling saxophones bearing the Adolphe Sax name until 1931. The last Adolphe Sax saxophone recorded in the Selmer Paris archives was sold in 1944. Its likely that production of Adolphe Sax instruments ceased at the onset of WWII sometime after May of 1940. Any Adolphe Sax instrument sold after this date was most likely already made or assemble from pre-existing parts. For example, the record shows that all of the recorded Adolphe Sax instrument sales between 1940-1941 were from instruments already manufactued between 1931-36. There is a fairly detailed record of these instruments recorded in a log book in the Selmer archives in Paris up to 1936 through serial number 1364. The record is much less complete after 1936. Instruments manufactured after 1936 range in serial number from 1350-3600. 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. Some instruments were stamped H. Selmer and some were not. All were stamped Adolphe Sax 84 Rue Myrha. By comparing early verses later instruments, it becomes clear that some Adolphe Sax Selmer saxophones were assembled from the old Adolphe Sax tooling and other were put togther using parts and tooling from the Selmer St. Louis Gold Metal model instruments.


Hi Ralph, maybe you can help me, I bought a tenor HA Selmer that says Bundy on it and the serial no. says 112287 (or something very close by memory), the seller says it is mid-60's and referred to it as a Beuscher but it does not say Beuscher. the seller I am certain is quite knowledgable about saxes due to 30-40 yrs of repair experience, and I am wondering if he says it is a Beuscher because perhaps it is modeled after one (as I have read). I just want to know appx age of the sax, I cant find a serial # chart. any help would be appreciated, thank you. *not sure if Ralph will likely be on here being that his response was many yrs ago. darn. * checked internet and it appears Ralph passed away in 2007. Looks like he was quite active with saxophones all his life. Cheers to Ralph Morgan 041b061a72
