    Comments about Kanstul 1508 Series Trombone:

    The 1508 was worth the wait, about two months on backorder, but I have had excellent luck with USA-made Kanstul trombones and euphoniums in the past. Just my opinion, but I really enjoy the bigger, deeper sound from a large bore trombone, and also appreciate the light weight for having to rarely use an F trigger. This trombone is quite light with a fairly thin bell and lightweight slide; nice for fast slide work.
    It also really seems to sing in the higher register than the King 4B or Conn 8H that I have played (although the heavier weight of those horns makes them sound a bit more powerful in the low register, IMO). Tuning is spot on in all positions/registers. The fit and finish are very good. Comes with 3 leadpipes of the same length but slightly different venturis, but I can't tell a difference at all.
    Included Kanstul 6.5AL mouthpiece seems well suited for the horn, and I also use a slightly larger 5G/51. Slide was very slightly scratchy out of the box compared to a new Yamaha slide (they are all remarkably good), but after a month it feels like it's getting better. I will use this for small jazz groups on 2nd or 3rd parts, and church/community groups on 1st part. Protec case is also very nice and roomy.
    Thanks Jack!
