Topic: Cor anglais question
I recently got a used cor anglais. She was in good shape. The lowest band on the bottom of the bell was loose and it was fixed (steel band fell off with a good sneeze lol).
After going through the instrument (a Selmer French model in a West German case - how many remember West Germany??!?) - I found the grenadilla where the serial # is was ground off. Now I have no way to ID the year she was made/born.
I did not realize it had no serial # when I won it at an auction. It's a long shot - but is there any way I can ID the approximate year it was made otherwise?
I'm not looking to sell it, just wanted to get an approximate date she was made. Thanks!
P.S. Adding a 'rough' picture of her!
Amateur in all regards, but learning! I love unusual and unique instruments!
