After disassembly, I would use my electric toothbrush (my old one) with a silver polish cream possibly with a bit of dish soap mixed in, to remove grime and tarnish. I would test it somewhere on the back side, or on some old silver object first.

Most of the metal Premiere models have an identical stamping on the bell. The earliest one I've seen had a slightly more ornate engraved pattern, but the same nomenclature. The metal Premiere was introduced in February/March 1928.

Re: Harry Pedler and Co./The Pedler Co. Serial Number List
« Reply #124 on: February 16, 2019, 04:53:14 AM »

If it helps, here's the starting and ending serials for every Pedler model I've recorded.

"Made by Harry Pedler & Co." professional model: 2847, 10075
"Made by Harry Pedler & Co." bass: 11490
Premiere : 3888, 15704
American, "Harry Pedler & Co.": 10728, 15711

I have recently acquired the metal Pedler American 10728; is this a Martin company or a Harry Pedler compagny instrument and is it considered a student instrument?  It's apparently in it's original case. No idea on the year however. It's got a stuffy lower register but is nice and full in the upper register, still looking for the right mpc to really see what it can do.
