The brand originated in Germany around 1925. Julius Keilwerth worked as an apprentice to the Kohlert Company in Czechoslovakia. After learning the trade, he began to make instruments out of a workshop in Germany with his brother Max. By World War II, Keilwerth was established as one of the largest saxophone manufacturers in the world. They have also provided the saxophone bodies to numerous other brands including Buffet Crampon, Armstrong, King, and Bundy.
With the rise in popularity of jazz music, the company knew it had to shift production. In 1986, Keilwert hired esteemed jazz musician, Peter Ponzol, to consult for a new line of jazz saxophones. The immediate result was the Modell Peter Ponzol alto and tenor saxophones which foreshadowed the now popular SX90R Series. The SX90R Series of saxophones was immensely commended among famous jazz musicians like Branford Marsalis, Courtney Pine, and Ernie Watts.
