A " V. Kohlert's Söhne, Graslitz, Czeckoslovakei, Modell 1927" soprano. A nickelplated straight soprano without the lower octave key!!!! Otherwise it's a nice wreck. So I have to made an new octave key or close the octave pipe and use the sax without octavekey!?!?!

Build a key. Can email you some shots of the alto octave key, it's probably similar.

Have fun!

Thank you Kev. The guy who sold the Kohlert soprano promised me that I "copy" the octave key on his other Kohlert soprano. He had two modell 1927!! I let you know if I need help with the octave key. Anybody looking for a nice bari? I saw one this afternoon.

Probably best to take a mould, then sand cast it. Either that or cut/file it out of solid brass. Sounds like a fun project.
