Here’s what Kanstul says about their Model 1001 Bb Chicago Series Trumpet
If you are looking for that “West Coast Sound” from the golden days of horn-driven rock and pop music, look no further. Continuing the legacy that brought brass into the Rock and Roll age, the Model 1001 is literally the sound you know from Earth, Wind and Fire and Tower of Power – an authentic descendant that maintains the same sound and passion that fueled a generation of trumpet players and horn lovers.
The famous .464″ MLP bore size gives this trumpet a free-blowing ease unlike any other horn. Supremely versatile, it is at its best in large, open venues where its unique sound can really soar.
This horn immaculate and has been blueprinted by Osmun Brass.
