(Pete) There are a couple of websites that have a bunch more French manufacturers on them than I list here. I can't recommend them highly enough:

Luthier Vents. It's in French, but there's a link to use Google Translate. The webmaster can also read and write in English.
ARCHIVES MUSIQUE, FACTEURS, MARCHANDS, LUTHIERS. Also in French. You might want to use Chrome with the auto-translate feature.

Please note that both websites do not concentrate on saxophones, but on all French-made instruments. So don't complain to them or me :D.

The Selmer-made Adolphe Sax horns are now in the Selmer gallery. You should give that a look, as some of the Selmer "Gen 1" horns are made from original AE Sax parts.

(Pete) Here's a sortable and searchable list of over 350 A. Sax saxophones, with links to pictures, some videos, and other data.

If you come across a broken link, use the Wayback Machine at the Internet Archive.
and send me a note at pete-at-thesax.info.
Please also e-mail if you see something that's just wrong.

Currently, the serial number list I'm using in this gallery is this one. There's more detailed and probably more accurate listat http://homepages.ed.ac.uk/am/gdsl.html (archived HERE).
This is the one I mainly use for the chart of 350+.

I've diverged from both charts on a few occasions. For an example, if I have a horn with serial number 12345 made in 1991, then I see a serial number 12346 that my sources say is made in 1952, there's something wrong with the source material.
Additionally, when the Eugenia Mitroulia and Arnold Myers list said "Location Unknown," I didn't include it in my chart. Some of those "Location Unknown" horns have been missing for over 100 years.

The list does need some more polish and I can probably find some more of these horns, but I want to take a break from this project for a while.
