Description: Eb Alto
Manufacture: Max Keilwerth
Stencil Name: Johannes Adler
Serial #: 5020
Finish: Silver plated

This Johannes Adler alto was built by Max Keilwerth at the time when he was working independently—after his time at Adler & FX Hüller, and before he was employed by Hohner. This horn is Czechoslovakian in origin.

Johannes Adler was a dealer, and the ciompany bought their musical instruments from a variety of suppliers. Obviously they bought at least some of their saxophones from Max Keilwerth.

The saxophones that Max Keilwerth built can be clearly identified by the Pure Tone Trademark stamp just above the serial #.

Like all the professional model horns built by the Keilwerth brothers, and other high-end European horn makers of the time, this sax had rolled tone holes and a microtuner.
