For sale is a custom piccolo trumpet from the estate and personal collection of Byron Autrey. This is a Bb and A 3 valve piccolo trumpet. The horn is a great player and plays very well in tune. I believe this was made in Zig Kansul's shop and Byron was very close to Zig. The lead pipes Bb and A are Getzen lead pipes. The bell is a Kanstul bell. The horn is a raw brass horn. Sale is for the horn only, no mouthpiece or case are included. Byron had worked for Kanstul as a salesman and clinician. I also believe Byron was very close with Doc Severinsen and was involved with the early design of the German made Destino horns by Franz Straub. Paypal or money orders are the preferred method of payment. Price includes shipping in the USA.

Here is a background on Byron.

Byron taught trumpet at Michigan State University for almost 40 years, and has studied the craft of trumpet design for decades. A long time symphonic player, Byron was Elden Benge’s first salesman and clinician, and has since consulted for some of the top names in the brass world. The mathematical approach he takes in understanding the flow of air and the vibration of the mouthpiece led him on, in his words, “many capers”.

Byron’s expertise has been invaluable to Kanstul for many years. Zig has referred to him as “the finest in the world for mating a mouthpipe to a horn to make it play its best.” Our Signature Piccolo and Eb trumpets, the Chicago series and Alto Horn have all received Byron’s personal attention. He has helped us develop and perfect other designs for special projects involving major performing artists and world-renown musical organizations. Byron’s touches have allowed Kanstul to provide players with some of the finest playing brass instruments available.
