I looked at a Kohlert clarinet in a shop a while back and searched for info on it. The best info was at:
Somewhere on that page is some info on the Kohlert around the years 1953 - 1965, during which period they went from being happy and successful, to having severe financial trouble, followed by bad quality control, and finally, in 1965, bankruptcy. I guess a Kohlert from the late fifties, like yours, could be either good or bad...
Hope this is of at least some help! /Eskil
