I thought these photos may be of interest. They are of SS-Haupsturmführer Adolf Laubmann who seems to be a bit neglected compared with the other bandleaders of the SS-Musikkorps.
As we may know he served with from 1934 in the "Deutschland" and "Der Führer" regiments and the "Das Reich" Division.
The first is of hie TK ring which is one of my prize possessions!
The second is from his Rusha file. The third photo shows him as a young civilian - probably conducting in the music halls at the time it was taken. It would be great if anyone knew of any other photos of him - say conducting or indeed of any recording he may have done with his bands.

There is an alleged photo of Adolf Laubmann conducting the "Der Führer" band in the "Musik in der Waffen-SS" book (photo section between pages 32 and 33, 1st photo), but it shows a man with much less hair than Laubmann in your photos has (i.e. I don't think it's the same person).
There is, however, a photo in the same book that I believe does show Laubmann, with the II./"Deutschland" band (photo section between pages 48 and 49, 2nd photo), I've posted it here viewtopic.php?f=81&t=216074#p2108891.
Note for anyone interested: another Adolf Laubmann topic (by the same member) can be found here viewtopic.php?f=38&t=188462
