FYI--I just pushed a major overhaul of the contemporacorner.com website live. Lots of new stuff to absorb, including:
Significantly expanded company history. I've done a lot of research on the period between 1929 and 1969, filling in lots of gaps and background history to how Reynolds got started, how the company was organized, what role Scherl & Roth played (and when they did).
Updated the bio for Foster A. Reynolds from much of the same research sources
Scanned in lots of new catalogs, price lists and brochures. Added a 1963 RMC catalog, a 1960s trombone brochure and lots of 1970s price lists
Many new print ads from the 1940s and 1950s
Updated the story of the Stereophonic (double valve bass tbn) with various details from Ostrander's side of things
I know it's been a long time coming, but I'm really happy to get this update finished.
Hope you enjoy --
