1966 Reynolds catalog
This is the earliest catalog collected from the time period after Reynolds was purchased by CMI. There is a clear 1966 copyright date on the back of the catalog.
The strong focus on student musicians continues, but CMI restores the "best-better-good" order of presenting instruments, with Contempora, Argenta, Emperor and Medalist models at the core of the catalog. Instrument descriptions are minimal and CMI retained the new numbering scheme introduced by Richards/RMC.
