    I think I am gonna get a red one to match my Red Laquered Martin Committee :cool: The Kanstul looks nice but is expensive. I was thinking along the lines of $200 from Ebay. Would turn heads in the clubs thats for sure! Miles would have had a hoot with a pocket trumpet. To bad they weren't around in 1990.

    I took my dad's to school in the fourth grade in a lunchbox, and that was in 1962.

    ps
    Not to start trouble, but in my opinion they are JUNK-JUNK-JUNK.
    The real question is...WHY???

    Hey Chuck

    You arent starting trouble :lol: Just stating your opinion. When I get one it sure isnt gonna be to replace my $2000+ Martin Committee, but to rather have a little more fun at a gig. I had a $200 Monique a few years ago and the intonation was certianly off, but was nothing I couldnt compensate for being a pro player. They are fun and certainly an eye catcher. Like a blond in a bikini, nice to look at but no substance or quality.

    Hey Chuck

    I'm not refering to the educated blonds of substance like your wife, but rather to the bimbos like that empty headed reject Jessica Simpson ROFL. She's so stupid its disgusting.

    Lil Bitch!

    Clarence, you never cease to amaze me man!

    I'll bet you one kewl kat to hang with. If I ever get back out ot Vegas I'll be looking you up sure nuff!

    Don't know anything about pocket trumpets so I'm learning here. I guess to echo Chuck's question why?

    Obviously it's smaller and more portable, but what's the draw!

    Discuss!

    I've played the Kanstul pocket. Really nice, but I was so thrown off playing the thing! All that horn and the sound RIGHT THERE in your face.

    I liked it though.
