I am working on compiling a database of known Instruments made by Chas. B. Rauch and the Dayton String Instrument Company. My goal is to analyze the evolution of the company's production. If you have anything you would like to share, please contact me. I will eventually post the running list on this site as the numbers grow. You will be credited (if desired) on the list. This is purely for educational/personal enjoyment.
At this preliminary stage I only have 15 instruments documented, some of which I obtained from previous threads on this site.
What I need from you:
Details of the instrument- at a minimum the type of the instrument and serial number.
I would also like to know if the label says Chas. B. Rauch or the Dayton String Instrument Company. Additionally, I would like to know if the headstock says "The Dayton".
Any other details you wish to share would be wonderful!
You can either post to this thread or contact me via private message.
Thanks very much,
