Description: Eb Alto
Manufacturer: Hohner Musikinstrumente
Model: President
Serial #: 12XXX
Finish: Lacquer with nickel plated keys
Source: rfxg47 on

This sax is circa 1963, and is among the first to have straight tone holes. Hohner dropped rolled tone holes on their Presidents around 12XXX.

Note the shape and decoration on the G# key. It is different than on earlier models. The sax also has the new style bell to body brace.

The sax still appears to have a high D/D# trill key however. This feature was obviously dropped a little later in the President's production run. We know it no longer was included on the 14601 alto.
