They contain both major and minor intervals. For me, the beauty is in the delicate balance between them. Sometimes it seems to inhale major and exhales minor!

Make and Model lists and research / Re: Harry Pedler & Co./The Pedler Co. Thread

After doing some digging, looks like the guarantee bond certificate was signed by Sidney Pedler, one of Harry's younger sons.

I was perusing an old issue of the NAPBIRT Technicom and noticed something interesting. Sidney A. Pedler is listed in an index of officers from Elkhart instrument manufacturers. There is no mention of him working for the Pedler company, but he was founder and president of the Hoosier Band Instrument Company from 1950 through 1964. I can find little other information on the company besides that it was incorporated in 1949 and officially dissolved in 1970, and Donald Getzen was apparently involved with it in the '60s.

Pedler had a Hoosier model starting in the mid-1930s and running at least through the 1940s. Suppose Sidney bought the name from Martin when he left to start his own company?

I did find an example of a Hoosier instrument not made by the Pedler Company - a wood clarinet. The bell stamping is the outline of Indiana with "HOOSIER" superimposed on it, and "Elkhart Ind." below.


That issue of TechniCom has another valuable detail: Joseph O. Thompson became vice president of Pedler in 1936, and held that post through at least 1953.

All about Clarinets / Martin Thibouville Boehm Bb LP integrated barrel

I got this a while back, never posted it:.

The barrel is really short, but I believe this is still a LP instrument.  I'll have to dig out all my Cs for comparison- I do have a definite HP Boehm C in that mix.
