Kohler, London

Slide Trumpet - highly decorated with early double clockspring mechanism. Identical in detail to the Woodham-Rodenbostel prototype of c.1789.

Slide Trumpet with compression spring [possibly a speciality of this maker]. Crispian owns three trumpets like this made by Pace.


George Astor, 79 Cornhill, London

Short model slide-trumpet, often referred to as a "Regents Bugle" - almost certainly a later conversion with single return spring.
