Review Date: 8/5/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $800.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: built by Kanstul
Cons: reverse tuning slide option = not a jazz horn

played almost new closeout - .462 bore - 'B' bell - reverse
tuning slide - Najoom leadpipe - 2 conventional water keys - took a lot of effort (and air) to get it to 'sing' in the
upper register - bell brace much closer to valve casing than most horns due to reverse tuning slide - still a lot of trumpet for the money !
