Notes on this instrument

In the early days of their existence, Schenkelaars imported saxophones from Beaugnier, in Mantes, near Paris, France. These were excellent instruments! The Schenkelaars company was founded in 1928. In 1949 they started manufacturing saxophones themselves. Considering the fact that this saxophone is engraved “Willemstraat”, where the first atelier of Schenkelaars was located, this instrument must be from the early 1930s.

Enclosed is the chapter of my book about saxophone manufacturers in the Netherlands (Dutch).
