 Selmer Model 67 bass vintages?
Author: tdufka

Since its introduction in 2004, has the design of the Model 67 changed significantly in terms of keywork or acoustics? If purchasing a previously owned instrument, are there any specific years/series to avoid?

No -- they have stayed pretty much the same.

Thanks Michael!

Having played both models 37 and 67, are you partial to any particular aspects of either vintage?

The 37s are great, great horns, and as such they're pretty hard to come by. When you can find a used one, expect it to not cost too much less than a new 67. That said, the 67 has a lot going for it, and I looooove my black one. It's really easy to play, free-blowing, and in-tune.

I guess you can't really go wrong with either model—of course, any particular instrument has gremlins, but they are very consistent, and if you find one you like, I'd be fairly sure you'll like it down the line, too.
