...I have a Selmer RL2 like that one, serial number 1180. The Casbah one is serial number 1168...

How could we find a date for those Selmer serial numbers??

Best!! ;)

Thank you Bobber!! ;)

I did it time ago. They told me that they don't keep archives for those days...

Can't they at least give an indication?

I'm afraid they didn't...

Anyway, that cat scan would place those mics around 1961...

Selmer has tried hard to help owners date their instruments.  Their website has a section on product serial number information but it doesn't include pick ups and microphones.

Right...

It's a pitty they haven't included that info. I guess they haven't kept the sources for that...

Yes, Xosé.  Selmer really didn't keep records of dates and serial numbers for accessories.  They kept good records for their higher-end instruments.  For example their Buffet clarinets.  They didn't keep records for their intermediate grade clarinets, like my Signet 100...
