I'm looking for a baritone in either playing condition or in need of restoration. If in need of work, no objection to leaking pads, dents, resolders, worn lacquer/plating or even missing neck. Keilwerth ToneKing would be of interest but most other professional makes (except Selmer) late '30's - '60's, also considered. If you have something, please send me a PM. Thank you.

I have a mid 1930's (??) Pennsylvania baritone sax, A=440Hz , keyed high F to low Bb, good immediate playing order, original neck & new spare neck, original hard case, no mouthpiece (but have Otto Link to loan for a trial). Made by Kohlert, iirc, in Czechoslovakia. has been relacquered, lacquer is a bit scabby here & there, a few light dings & resolders, all rolled tone holes in good condition, monster sound, eminently playable.

I've just bought one of them. They play absolutely fantastically, absolutely belting sound.

[h=2]from an earlier thread.[/h]


great old Czech baritone, made by Koelhert factory, this one's probably pre-war,
rolled tone holes like the Conns, has the BIG sound too :)
A few light dings, some solder repairs.
Some missing lacquer, particularly near a previous repair on lower-back of body tube,
but very presentable & nice Art-Deco engraving on bell.
in good immediate playing order, with case,[ but NO MOUTHPIECE ]
Original neck & hard case - case is very usable & heavy ;-)
Keyed low Bb to high F, modern 'low' pitch A=440 Hz

asking £650, includes tracked courier to UK, other locations at cost.
[Or spend £11,500 on a new Yanagisawa if you want to :w00t:.....]

Why am I selling ?
a/ i have too many saxes & need to specialise in tenor/sop/clarinet, and
b/ i bought myself another Pennsylvania special bari, in Silver plate ;-) - I don't need TWO

more images and sound clips soon, any trial in 'sunny' Glasgow, I have an Otto Link mpc you can borrow, or bring your own. Pm me with questions, offers, or ask for my tel number, or reply here...
