For sale is a custom piccolo trumpet made in the Kanstul shop and this was owned by Byron Autrey. Byron was friends with Zig Kanstul and advised Zig on lead-pipe design as well as mouthpiece designs. Byron also worked with Franz Straub and Doc Severensen with the design of the lead-pipe on the Destino trumpet made in Germany.
Horn is a great playing 3 valve piccolo trumpet and is a great in tune horn for classical Baroque music as well as jazz. The bell is a Kanstul bell and the mouth-pipes are Getzen for trumpet mouthpieces. Sale is for the horn only and will be shipped fully insured. Price does include shipping in the US. PAYPAL is the preferred method of payment.

This is from Kanstul's website mentioning Byron Autrey.

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.
