    Hey guys, just curious about somethin.

    How do arrange for a visit to the Selmer factory? I'd love to go check out the factory and see some horns, but how does one go about touring the factory?



    Thank you!

    What he said. They are nice guys. I suggest you go through your local dealer and his rep.

    I've wondered, are the Bach, CG Conn and King trumpets made at the same factory or are they in different locations?

    Just in case this would interest you: if you go to the Oberloh instrument repair site there is, in addition to all sorts of other interesting stuff, a sort of "tour" (photographic) of the Conn factory in the early part of the twentieth century. Some pretty amazing information . . . and Dan's a good guy, to boot.
