This horn is circa 1963, if the serial number list on Saxpics is accurate.

I would describe this as a upper, intermediate level horn. Other than missing the fine adjustment screws found on pro horns, I haven't noticed any real differences between this sax, and other pro model German horns of the same vintage. It is for the most part still original, and could do with an overhaul—which is why it was abandoned at my tech's shop years ago. I'm currently playing around on it while he is overhauling my JK Toneking. At this point I don't know yet if I will keep it or return it to him.

This is the first Kohlert I have played extensively, therefore I don't know how it stacks up against earlier models. But the intonation is excellent, and it plays pretty evenly across the range. A repad and proper set-up would fix the small quirks that it has I'm sure.

As the photos show, this was a horn that didn't see much use for most of its life. It is in lovely condition, with only minimal wear on the lacquer, and no play in the keys. They pads are in good shape, although some of them are poor seated. (You'll likely notice that in the photos.)
