Pros: Very well designed, versatile
Cons: Not available any more

Its a solid mid-weight horn, with a plentiful .462 bore. With the square or rounded tuning crooks you can get very different sounds and "blows." The square one gives a fuller, more symphonic sound. The round one lets the air through better for high work. The valve cap combinations change the color as well. I like one heavy one on the third valve. The valves themselves are just right. The water key combo is helpful as well, with a standard on the tuning slide and amado on the third. It came with the Najoom lead pipe so I don't know what it would sound like otherwise but I'm very pleased with it. I think Kanstul makes some of the best horns with the most consistency out there. I've had it for eight years now and it was a great investment.
