The answer posted is incomplete and incorrect.



There are vintage Kohlerts made in Germany before and for a while after WWII, and there are modern Kohlerts, which I believe are made in China. They are entirely different horns than the vintage Kohlerts.

 The Boosey & Hawkes Kohlert stencils are also vintage horns, made by Kohlert and relabeled. They are not made "now" and haven't been for decades. The actual Kohlert company went bankrupt years ago.

 I cannot speak as to the tonal or manufacturing quality of modern Kohlerts. They do have more modern keywork. I have played a vintage Kohlert alto, and it is a very good horn.
