Roth Horns

Student-line Roth horns were introduced in 1959 and were available in F and B♭ models. Production only lasted two or three years until Reynolds was sold to Richards Music in 1961 and the Roth models were rebranded as Emperor horns.

Richards Music purchased Reynolds in 1961 and rebranded the Roth horns as Emperor models. It's unknown how long that transition took and if there were Roth models produced with RMC branding, as has been documented with cornet and trombone models. This section will be updated if additional information becomes available.
