In 1963, Selmer purchased the Buescher Band Instrument Company just as it was being closed for good. Actual purchase was by the Bundy Band Instrument Company, a subsidiary of H. & A. Selmer, Inc. The Buescher name and most of the lines were perpetuated by Selmer. Selmer also used the Buescher name on some horns made by Boosey and Hawkes. The Elkhart Band Instrument Company (not to be confused with the Elkhart Musical Instrument Co which was started by Gronert in 1912 and merged with Martin in 1917. ) was started in 1924 by Buescher President Andrew Beardsley. After Beardsleys death in 1928, Elkhart Band Instrument company was merged into Buescher. Elkhart used Bandmaster, Tempo and Windsor as tradenames. Buescher used Elkhart Band Inst as a trademark.
