Description: Bb Tenor
Manufacturer: Hohner Musikinstrumente
Model: President
Serial #: 12355
Finish: Lacquered with nickel plated keys
Source: irresistibletype on

This sax was made in 1963, which was the first year that Hohner switched to using straight rather than rolled tone holes.

This is a transitional tenor, in that it has some of the features of the new style Presidents:

> Bell to body brace
>Straight tone holes

Yet it still has most of the features (or lack thereof), of the older style Hohners:

> Left pinkie cluster
> High D/D# trill key

The new version all had high F# keys. Unfortunately the photos provided of this horn don't show us this region, so it is hard to say with 100% accuracy if this tenor has the key or not.
