So, would Conn manufacture a clarinet for Martin ???

 Well, I would have to say "yes" ! 

Judging by the serial number, this appears to be a late 1921 Conn.

Conn (via Pan-American) also built bass saxophones for Martin, so it's not surprising.

The Conn - Buescher - Martin - Pedler connections sure are intriguing.


Almost forgot Pedler!
