Question
i just bought a euphonium (Beaufort American Chicago USA) serial #35080. want to find out the age of this instrument. thanks.

Answer
Beaufort was the Holton company's early attempt to get into the student instrument market.  I don't have a date on when Holton first started importing and marketing this brand.  However, by 1929, the company decided to produce their own line of student instruments in house, called Collegiate.

Expertise

Please note: My area is BRASS instruments, not other wind, string or percussion instruments. I will provide information on antique, obscure and out of production BRASS instruments. 1) Please don't ask for evaluations, I'll not provide them on this site. 2) I am often asked very similar questions, so I'd invite you to first check on Horn-u-Copia.net. Much of the information I have garnered about this topic, I have posted on this WEB site.

Experience

I perform in several historical bands, have informally researched the area, repair brass instruments, and operate a Forum dedicated to the topic at http://horn-u-copia.net
