Better than you think

By The Machine-ruZu2

Having experience with the very best Selmer and Yamaha have to offer, I wasn't expecting much from such an inexpensive horn. Honestly, if someone else hadn't bought the horn for me, I never would have thought to try it out. But, having played it now for a couple months, I'm quite impressed. For the price, it simply can't be beat. If you are not a professional, or are a beginner or someone just getting back in to playing, the horn will definitely not be the limiting factor. The pads cover the holes well and the horn plays smoothely across the breaks. The action works fine. It seems like Kohlert has copied a good horn. The only nit I have to pick is that they seemed to copy a case made for a different brand of horn. It's like trying to put a Yamaha sax in a Selmer case. Overall, for the price, it is an unbelievable bargain.


Good value for new players.

I've had this saxophone for about 9 months and couldn't be happier with it. Unfortunately, the first one I received had a rod broken off at the joint to the body. I imagine an instrument costing twice or more wouldn't have such a defect. Musician's Friend was really quick about the return process, so no hard feelings there. Nine months later, with decent practice, I've replaced the stock mouthpiece with a Jody Jazz HR and consider it a great improvement. Like other reviews mention, the low notes don't punch or flow well with the stock mouthpiece, but at least it included one for beginners like me. I've played guitar for about 7 years, so I have some sense for writing music and achieving specific tones for the given style. This horn will not let you down if you plan on just playing around the house, but a gigging musician should consider a higher end one with a more durable case.


This is an underestimated instrument!

By Nils R. Bull Young

I bought the Kohlert tenor because I have the soprano & alto & I like the way they play.The tenor played into the basement (low B) right out of the box. It has a smooth mechanism to the touch of my jaded fingers. Even playing with the mouthpiece that comes with the horn was a pleasure. (I use a Yamaha 4C on the other instruments.) This is a big, well-constructed, easy-to-play horn. And it comes with a real, wood-box case with a handle on the end and feet on the opposite end for handling & storing vertically. Just like the alto.These Kohlert horns may not be from "the old country" & the brand name may be borrowed, but they are hugely underated horns. They're definitely good enough for medium-proficiency band or orchestra players & certainly good enough for 59-year-old guys trying to recapture the joy of playing jazz and widening his repertoire a bit. And you can get the entire set (sop, alto & tenor) for much less than one-and-a-half kilobucks. Each of 'em is at least 8 stars.


great sounding horn

I've been playing in a church band for about 20 years, my wife bought me this sax in March of 2009. After seeing the sax and getting the feel of it I thought it was gonna be an "OK" sax. after playing it and finding the right mouthpiece (berg larsen 100/0 m, I actually fell in love with it. I'd put it up against any other high end sax. Excellent saxophone....


Excellent Sax for the Price..

This sax was given to me brand new from a friend who had just recently bought a Selmer sax and didn't need it. I also play a Selmer and when I first looked at it and the price,I thought "this is gonna be another poor quality student saxophone" but wow was I wrong. This is actually a very nice saxophone it plays extremely well especially for the price. I'd consider this a high-end student saxophone. It'll serve as a nice practice tenor for me. Kudos to Kohlert.


A really worthy sax.

By ss

from Beirut, Lebanon

Well, I bought this sax on a limited budget and I was freaking out because I needed the sax to perform in a gig at my university and was afraid it wasn't going to pull it off. When I got it, it played just great. The package is good except for the fact that the case is weak and heavy, and the mouthpiece that comes with it sucks, but I got an Otto Link 6* and the sound that comes out rivals that of some Keilwerths I played with. However, when you are buying a great sax for this kind of price, you'll still have cash for accessories. All in all, I am extremely happy with the product and it was worth every penny and more.

this saxophone is easy to play and has a rich tone. the kohlert design is as good as it gets! great for jazz, rock, and classical music. this saxophone is worth buying. not bad for its price. great for beginners and saxophone players of all ages. my dad bought this for me when i joined my school band. the high notes are great and it might sound better with a Berg Larsen mouthpiece. the low notes are a little...wierd. but otherwise, great.


Pleasantly surprised!!!

By Lynda S

from Searcy, AR

I was not expecting such a great tenor sax for such a small price. This tenor has great sound, looks good and has several professional touches such as trill keys for difficult fingerings, not to mention one extra high note key (I think high G) that I never had on my other tenors before. I will definitely enjoy learning how to play difficult runs using the alternate fingerings. I will recommend it to others who are looking for an inexpensive horn. Thanks for the low price...I've been looking for a while!!! I don't think you can be beat!


No Regrets Buying This Sax.

By Saxman 460

from Lampasas, Texas

A great, great sax for the money! No kidding.Great tone, and a super sound wether you play jazz, or rock & roll, this sax will deliver. I get good performance using Rico # 2 1/2- 3 reeds.Great value for money, and comes with a real sturdy case.


You might need a fixer

By Saxophunk-N7bni

A couple of screws went loose and the rods go out of place. I don't know what's wrong but I've already put it in a shop. When blowing, it takes too much air as well. I guess it could be me... I DO have a friend that owns a Kohlert and seems to be happy with his.


A Great Horn For All Levels

By CallMeBoots

from Georgetown, TX

I have owned this tenor for a few weeks and have practiced with it and used it in a jam session with friends. I am extremely pleased (and suprised) with the construction, quality of mechanism, and intonation of this instrument. My friends also say it is a sweet-sounding horn. I didn't like the mouthpiece, but found one that is a good fit. This is so easy to blow and fun to play. I have owned some pretty nice tenors in the past (Conn 10m Naked Lady model, Leblanc Rationale, and Yamaha YS23) and this one holds its own with any of them. This is the second Asian-built horn I have purchased and I must say I wouldn't give up either one.The case is well-built and fits the horn well - perhaps one of the nicer cases I have seen.


A pretty good sax~

By Nero

from Somewhere in Washington.

Well, my mom bought this for me back in 2004. I've had the same sax since I was in 6th grade, and i'm almost a senior now. I did have a little problem with the sax though. Some screws keep getting loose and it really is hard for me to blow. I can't seem to get a bigger sound out of it, no matter how much air I put through it. I've had 6 years of experience with it - I KNOW how to play sax. I've tried blowing on other saxes, and they work just fine.That's probably the only issue with mine. And - I can't play any notes lower than a low C. When I push the right buttons down, it makes a weird sound like... I can't explain it. Anyway, it's a good sax.


This Sax Rocks!

This Saxophone plays amazingly and I never heard a warmer sound than the tenor. I have an alto and soprano but theres nothing like a tenor saxes sound to jazz things up.
