Transitional Horns

Before Germany's reunification in 1989, Vogtländische Musikinstrumentenfabrik GmbH was known as VEB Blechblas- und Signal-Instrumenten-Fabrik. At that time the VEB was making Weltklang Soloist as well as B&S saxophones.

Upon Germany's reunification, B&S transitioned from a State-owned company to a private enterprise, and soon it introduced 3 new models of totally re-designed saxophones: the 1000, 2001, and Dave Guardala Series of horns.

However, during the course of this transition saxophone production continued, and some saxophones carried features of both the old VEB and the new GmbH.

I call the horns in this sub-gallery "transitional" because they have not only got the new (all) lacquer finish offered, but they also have the new serial number convention: They start with 0 or 00. Most importantly, they do not have either the Series 1000, 2001, or Dave Guardala engraving. They still have the old style B&S engraving on the bell. (Hits: 3648)
