    Regarding the Kanstul tooling, I'm super skeptical. So far as I can tell, there are two distinct models of Kanstul compensating euphoniums. The first generation looks more Besson-ish on quick...

    I'm really disappointed to see the trouble that Kanstul is in right now. I've been absolutely thrilled with mine, and I know tons of players who swear by their flugels. I'm hoping they can pull...
