Up for auction, a 1990's FRENCH BESSON / KANSTUL, ANAHEIM - ''INTERNATIONAL SERIES'' MODEL - MEDIUM LARGE BORE SEMI-PROFESSIONAL Bb TRUMPET IN EXCELLENT PLUS CONDITION
I have been playing horns for 53 years...collecting and restoring them for 42. Over those years I put together a nationally recognized trumpet/ cornet collection that topped out at 145 horns. During the past four years I have substantially thinned out the herd and continue to do so. All my horns are gig ready...cleaned, valves adjusted & aligned with new corks & felts when necessary.
Here's a beautiful example of a Kanstul built French Besson International Series model...IMHO, the sleeper of the decade! According to the Besson Loyalist website: ''Originally marketed as an 'intermediate' model, it is intermediate in name only. It deserves a ranking as a professional level instrument and compares very well with Bach and Yamaha pro models. Players that own them love them and play them for all styles of music.'' In the early 80's Kanstul contracted with Besson to produce some of their new model lines. The International Series was one of the models that Kanstul built until they decided not to renew their contract, so it was discontinued in 1998. Since then they were redersignated BE800 IS, made in India,
