My 7th grader has been playing a Yamaha Student horn for about 4 years now and is ready to move up to an intermediate horn. I've been reading about the Kanstul KTR700. I've heard that the price is competitive and that although it is rated as a student horn, it's really more than that. I'd love some advise and if Jack reads this, I'd love to know how to contact you directly. Mike G.
