Hi Kohlert fans
I picked up a nickel plated alto in good condition recently and would like to discover more about its pedigree.
The horn has no decoration on it and no sign of a serial number but has been rather crudely stamped "V Kohlert Sons, Graslice, Bohemia, modell1927" below the rim of the bell - so not much marketing effort going on there.
I wonder if this horn was made for some military or official use.
It looks to be a well made instrument and sounded good enough when I got it - although a bit wheezy.
It is now away having some leaks fixed and the action regulated.
This horn is not a clapper and has both bell keys on the l.h.s. from the player's point of view.
It also has a button top F key
Any insights are most welcome!
