It dates from Selmer’s ‘crocskin’ period, 1963 – 1965, a very exciting period for music and equipment.
At that time, countless bands were working hard, turning themselves into hit-makers and songwriters. Some even had day-jobs, including two future members of The Small Faces who worked at Selmer’s London factory: Kenney Jones on assembly and Ronnie Lane, testing amps. Did Ronnie Lane test this one? As a Small Faces fan, my imagination says, “of course he did!”
