    Conn-Selmer tour

    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!

    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.
