The only markings on it I can see are. The brand is Bundy, and down by the bell it says designed by Vincent Bach. Where the slide screws in, there is a little ML, and the serial number is 375418. Any info at all about the Bundy line would be helpful It's really got me curious now.

The first Selmer clarinets were made in 1890. By 1900 Selmer was also manufacturing Alto Clarinets, Bass Clarinets, Flutes, Oboes, and English Horns. In 1904 Henri joined with his brother Alexandre to form H. & A. Selmer. Alexandre was an accomplished clarinetist and was able to help Henri while a clarinetist with the Boston Symphony. Henri died in 1941; Alexandre in 1951. At about 1918, George Bundy retained the rights to American distribution.
While Selmer manufactured Mark VII Alto and Tenor saxes they continued to make Mark VI Soprano and Bari saxes for some time.

So, I've been playing trombone as a hobby for a long time, and the only trombone I actually have is my old King 606 student trombone. Its got all sorts of problems, mainly that the slide has a few dings and it gets a little stuck around 5th-6th position.

Anyway, so someone gave me a trombone thats in better condition that mine, but I'm having trouble identifying exactly what it is to get some specs on it (mainly bore size). I don't have calipers, or I'd just measure the bore size. The only markings on it I can see are.. the brand is Bundy, and down by the bell it says designed by Vincent Bach.. BUNDY. Selmer. Where the slide screws in, there is a little ML, and the serial number is 375418.
