This morning I drove down to Anaheim to get a factory tour of Kanstul and try out some Kanstul horns. It was a great day. I met with Charles who took me through the factory to show me the process of making a horn and all the good work they do. I then walked over with him to the showroom to try out some horns. Ireally enjoyed playing them. I liked them all but narrowed it down to the 990 built from The Conn Constellation 38B Specs, 1500A 1001 as my favorites. While I was playing I also tried a few different mouthpieces and settled on a used Gold G1. A copy of Miles Davis' mouthpiece from what I was told. I love it. Charles is a really cool and very knowledgable about the products. I also decided to take my 1956 Olds Recording in very good condition with me. Charles told me that they could make it look brand new for about $225.00. There was lacquer wear around the valve casing and on the bell near the valve casing along with a few other small spots. I said why not. Since it was made at Olds under Zig's management, why not have it relacquered under it. I met Zig when I went back into the factory and he looked over the Olds and was impressed with the condition it was in. He said it didn't look as if any work has been done to it and the lead pipe was still in good shape so I didn't need to replace it. All in all a great experience. If you get a chance to visit it is well worth the time. I am looking forward to getting my Olds Recording back in 2 to 3 weeks.
