For sale is a Ken Larson Brasswerks Bb trumpet New York N taper leadpipe, and the accompanying New York Narrow tuning slide in raw brass.

Descriptions from the Brasswerks website -
Leadpipe - "N taper is designed specifically for the New York Narrow tuning slide. Works well on Bb for a dense, brilliant core. Free blowing with excellent slotting."
Tuning Slide - New York Narrow, "great slotting and dense center of sound."

Ken is not only the trumpet instructor at Interlochen Arts Center but is also a reknown trumpet designer who once worked in Bob Malone's shop. This pair was mounted on my Bb by Ken himself and later removed before I sold the Bb, so the leadpipe has the expected solder marks. I found this pair made my Bach play more similarly to my Yamaha Chicago style C trumpet.

The new price is $250 each (or $500 total) but today I offer it for sale at $300 for the pair. Paypal for payment and US buyers preferred. $15 shipping due to the size of the leadpipe.
