As a protégé of Alexandre Selmer, George Bundy assumed management of the Selmer retail store in New York City in 1911. He immediately expanded the store’s assortment by cultivating relationships with various American band instrument and accessory manufacturers. Soon after purchasing the store from the Selmers in 1927, Bundy opened a manufacturing plant in Elkhart, Indiana.
By combining the newly emerging field of plastics refinement with quality craftsmanship, the Bundy Resonite Model 1400 clarinet was born in 1948. From this innovation, an entire line of musical instruments developed that achieved the unique combination of durability, quality, and value. This affordable option inspired the depression-ravaged music industry, and allowed families on tight budgets to play music. Subsequently, Bundy became recognized as the most popular brand of student band instruments in the world.
Today, Bundy uses computer-aided design and advanced manufacturing techniques to produce a line of instruments unparalleled in craftsmanship and affordability. These enhancements — combined with George’s original vision — make Bundy the natural choice for inspiring musical enjoyment.
