(Helen) After Germany's reunification in 1989, B&S transitioned from a State-owned company to a private enterprise. Their name became Vogtländische Musikinstrumentenfabrik GmbH. They introduced 3 new model lines that were totally redesigned. These were the: 1000, 2001, and Dave Guardala Series.
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.
