    Hi Bruce,

    Have you ever tried the Kanstul Paris Series or the California series trumpets? Were they ever made? Thanks! Frank

    Hi Frank,

    Wow I’m sorry! I just saw your note this morning. I don’t check this part of my website very often. (Obviously!!!)
    Kanstul closed it’s doors before those models ever became available. There may have been some prototypes, Charles would know. Would you like me to look into that?
