Description: Eb Alto
Manufacturer: Max Keilwerth
Model: Präsident
Serial #: 1223
Finish: Silver plated

I have not seen many of these Präsident saxophones, so I cannot say with 100% certainty what the German spelling of President is all about. However, I can speculate that the German-spelled Präsident horns are the earliest incarnations of the President model saxophones that Max Keilwerth built. The very limited serial #'s that I have seen would back up this theory.

Furthermore, the saxophones that Max Keilwerth built can normally be clearly identified by the Pure Tone Trademark stamp just above the serial #. It is interesting to note that this stamp is missing on this horn. I further postulate that this Präsident was built before MK received his Trademark.

This Präsident 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.

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.
