Designed and developed in the late ninties as a special co-operative Research and Development project with Kanstul Music Instruments of Anaheim, California it had to meet not only Mr. Steuart's austical demands, but his aquired fine taste and enormous experience as a top- International Prize Winning Soloist, Chamber Musician and Recording Artist. 
Combining the extraordinary ablities of the German based La Tromba design and development personel with the KMI (California, USA) factory machinists and workmen have now taken this very special instrument design idea to it's Zenith of both perfection in Craftmanship and at the same time down to earth practicality,... in short "a marriage of good old American Knowhow and typical German Precision (and perhaps even genius!?) in Design Innovation"!. 

This instrument is available with either "American" Monel/Brass or "German" Steel/Bronze valves (pictured here with "monel" valves), three screw- bells, three sets of slides and three lead pipes, first-valve triggers and third-valve finger-rings (for all key combinations) and standard heavy caps it is available only in 24 Karat Gold-Plate.
