Kanstul 1520 Piccolo Trumpet in excellent condition. This horn is exceptionally versatile. Includes 4 leadpipes (Bb trumpet, Bb cornet, A trumpet, A cornet--use A pipes for key of G), 3 bells (Bb, A, G), and slide sets to place the horn in each key. With a .460 bore, this instrument has a more open and flexible feel than any other picc I've played. I've found it great for solo rep, excerpts, and surprisingly easy to use in the orchestra, even on parts that aren't customarily played on picc (I used it for the last movement of 'Pines of Rome' to great effect, for example). A bit broader sound than a Schilke, but still cuts through or sits on top of the ensemble as a picc should. Easy to play in tune and reacts well to various mouthpieces to get different sounds.

The instrument and all parts are in excellent condition. Valves are smooth and reliable, slides function properly, and compression is good. I removed first valve trigger (never used it), but those parts are included. Aesthetically, horn is in very good condition and plating is excellent. This is reliable, high-quality instrument ready for professional use.

This instrument sells new for $5,225 and good examples are rarely available used. More pictures available by request. Kanstul case intended for this instrument (and leather bag for extra pipes/slides) is included and pictured. No mouthpiece. Buyer to pay estimated actual shipping cost. Selling for $3000. Don't hesitate to ask questions.
