    Bochawa!!!,

    I do have in mind some sort of update publication, but as you can tell the research is arduous and time consuming. My files are becoming pretty thick on the Conn Companies alone. I have been in touch with Dean McMakin who wrote a couple of 1987 booklets that are part of the footnotes for Ms Banks publication. I now have copies. Ms Banks has never responded to me, although she did briefly meet with Kenton of horn-u-copia that past fall.

    Not to belittle this fantastic research, but I feel like releasing this information online would be pretty good by itself. Physical publication is always a good idea, though, and this certainly would be a good update to the established histories. Now we just need ones for Huttl, Amati, and the many Meinls...

    I do supply much of my information to the Conn Loyalist and horn-u-copia. As the info on Elkhart grows, I will likely be updating the Bueascher Loyalist as well. I have touched bases with him already.

    I am hoping to have some prelim's on the Elkhart BIC later this month.

    Fantastic! On a funny side note, I checked the Buescher Loyalist, and noticed the modern BU7 model. They may not care to know this, but that model is a Hoxon Gakki stencil of the CarolBrass 1000H student model.

    I think we need to get as much info as possible and put together a short indie film...the engravers obviously deserve a segment or two :)

    Just got a 1939 Buescher 400 225. Needs a third valve spring and one of those three pronged "star" valve guides...any good sources??

    Neat! At that time Buescher was only a name; I don't know if anyone there had any input in instrument design. I think that is mostly a Bundy, but at least it has an historic name on it. :-)
