I have a tenor saxophone that says MADE IN GERMANY. The serial number is 86xx. The engraving has the word SENATOR on the bell. I was thinking that it was a hohner, but there is no brand name on the sax to indicate this. I am starting to believe that it is from Dorfler and Jurka, since I saw a Voss with the exact same stencil and body. Any speculation or information would be helpful.

I'll try to get pics later.

If it's a J. Keilwerth, then the posts will be mounted individually, not on ribs (most of the Czech horns use ribbed mounting. Also, the distinctive beveled posts on JK horns are unique.

Could possibly be a later derivative of the Hohner "President" which finished production in 1967 I believe. This was a Kielworth bodied sax built up by Max Kielworth for Hohner.
