The nomenclature "United Musical Instruments" and "UMI" have been dropped. Steinway Musical Instruments has done the inevitable and combined the former Selmer and UMI companies into the "Conn-Selmer" Division. There will still be separate sales divisions for Conn and Selmer, but production and other departments will be combined and streamlined.
To my knowledge, no change in the production and distribution of Conn and King tubas has been announced.
This news comes from an article in the November issue of Music, Inc. Magazine. UMI's website does not yet reflect the announced marketing changes.
