View Full Version : Bass Trumpet

Has anyone had experience with the Kanstul bass trumpet or the Tuyama currently on eBay? I'm looking towards the Kanstul but wouldn't mind a less expensive instrument that net my needs

I am a spoiled player because of the beautiful instruments I managed to find after starting to play again (church brass group) after a 43 year hiatus. I expect there might be an Olds influence in the Kanstul

Your comments appreciated

I've played the Kanstul and it is a great player. I've also played a Getzen Bass trumpet, and they also play very well. I've seen many more Getzen Bass trumpets on eBay over the past years, so maybe keep an eye open for that model.
