This President 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.

The only thing that makes this train wreck of a horn interesting, is that it is the first non-Hohner President that I have seen that has eyebrow key guards. Obviously Max Keilwerth started putting this feature on his horns prior to working for Hohner in Germany. Notice the shape of the left pinkie cluster. It too is the same that we see on the Hohners. However, unlike early versions of the Hohner-made Presidents, this horn has rolled tone holes. The very first Hohner Presidents had soldered tone holes, like are found on Martins.

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.
