    I have a Kuhlohorn made by A.C. Glier in 1895. In comparison to my favorite Flugel, an english Besson ca. 1920, the Glier has a slightly brighter sound, and blows a little easier in the upper register. It also draws more attention at performances.

    The fact that you have a Kuhlohorn in OK shows that these things can get quite far... I've got a Glier Kuhlohorn as well, probably same period, same characteristics... but we're quite a few miles apart...

    But all you need to do (or had to do) is explain to your audience that it's a Kuhlohorn - remember they caint spell it and it sounds, well, COOL!
