I've just bought myself a second hand tenor sax - Selmar Paris series III. Can you tell me where I can check the serial number to find out in what year the instrument was made. Serial number 6 digits starting 585---
Your best bet would be to contact Selmer directly.
I can only find serial number charts up to 490,000(1992) which appears to be before the introduction of series III.
So you are post 1992 for sure and I think the series III came out around 1999. I'm fairly sure Selmer will help you.
Yes, I normally use Don Macks charts but trying some random numbers beginning 585 (bit hit and miss I guess) you get an error. Give your number a try, you'll probably get the same. Give them a call direct - they might be able to help
