Buescher Bell Logos

In an effort to more easily recognize what era a Buescher trumpet is from, I decided to start tracking what the "bell logo" looked like on horns of all eras. This page is a run down of those Bell Logos and the names I have given them. I have NO CLUE if these Logos already have names associated with them, so if you disagree with what I have named them, please feel free to give me the appropriate name(s).

I will also give a brief description of the trumpet coloring and styling in each era.

The idea for THIS page is really what started me on my journey to create this site. I was first introduced to Buescher Horns in 2011 and I quickly noticed how beautifully their Bell Engravings were. I started gathering pictures of Buescher bell engravings so I could better identify the YEAR of the horn.. little did I realize that Buescher produced MANY models in any given year and some of them had Different Bell Engravings. So my little project of finding (what I thought would be) a dozen bell engravings turned out to be a massive undertaking. I'm STILL finding Bell Engravings I didn't know existed. From that little project I then found myself wanting to find OTHER ways to identify specific Buescher models and years... thus came the MODELS page and the rest of this website.
