Description: Eb Alto
Manufacture: Max Keilwerth
Model: Special
Serial #: 4692
Finish: Silver plated
Source: damienek on

The engraving on the bell reads: Fabr. Erstkl. Saxophone. In English that translates to: Makers of first class saxophones.

Note the following about this sax:

1. The bis Bb roller key. This is similar to what we see in G.H. Hüller saxes.
2. This horn has the G# and C/D trillers commonly found in German horns of the time.
3. Someone has tampered with the engraving. This was originally engraved with the German eagle, and a swastika.

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

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.
