Vintage LARGE BORE Martin TU-55 Indiana, Elkhart
Vintage LARGE BORE Martin Indiana, Elkhart
Martin created the Indiana Band Instrument Company in 1928 as a paper entity to distribute its second-line products sold under those brands. That entity was officially dissolved by 1942. Production was very limited during World War II and the Korean War, however Martin was able to survive as a company thanks to their limited production and strong reputation. In 1961 Paul E. Richards combined Martin, E. K. Blessing, and F.A. Reynolds under the "Roundtable of Music Craftsmen," or RMC. Richards desired increased production for the student market. Indiana was the student line offering from Martin.
