This a vintage English Horn! The Kohlert company was founded in the 1840’s, in Graslitz, Czechoslovakia. Many records about the company have been lost due to World War II and the German occupation of Czechoslovakia. Research has been difficult but due to the specific stamp on the English Horn, V.Kohlert’ Sons, we can place this horn between 1938-1945. This Horn is a one of kind!
Our professional woodwind repair technician has completely re-padded this English Horn. This includes the bocal and tenon cork. The keys are cloudy due to age and there is a faint crack on the upper joint, that seems to be filled in before we received it. Small wear and tear on the bell of the instrument. The key work of this specific instrument is over 80 years old, so we highly recommend trying it out before purchasing as it is not modern key work. Includes a hard case but is not in the best shape.
