Notes on this instrument

Note the interesting speaker keys in the bottom half of this instrument! According to Dullat (p. 95, see below), this was patented by Hüller in 1929.

The construction year of this instrument is an estimate, based on the information (p. 100) from Günter Dullat’s excellent book “Faszination Saxophon”. (Verein der Freunde und Förderer des Musikinstrumenten-Museums Markneukirchen e.V., 2016).

In this book you can find virtually everything there is to know about saxophone construction in Germany throughout the decades.
