Congratulations on the new website!
Thanks Jeff! Couldn’t have done it without you. It looks great!
Just got the Kanstul 1070 (silver plated) recently and can confidently say it is the greatest most versatile trumpet I have ever played during more than 60 years. For perspective, know that I have a handmade custom 1961 Benge which has until now been my preferred main horn for gigs and recording. I also have a Bach Strad 43 which plays great but it is a Bach and requires lots of effort as we all know. My Yamaha LA Bergeron trumpet is a fantastic horn but has the Yamaha sound with limited ability for nuances. My Kanstul 1603+ (Wallace Roney Martin Committee model) is easily the best horn ever made for jazz but does not have the versatility of the 1070. In short, for an all around trumpet, nothing is close to Kanstul’s 1070: amazingly responsive, great slotting, tremendous flexibility for volume changes, full sound in all registers, and you never get tired. A great clone of the Chicago Benge but perfected with a bigger, lighter Bell, lightening fast valves, a large bore that does not wear you out and a gorgeous sound. Where can you find that? No where but Kanstul! These guys are geniuses.
Hi, Bruce! Good blogging here. Always looking forward to my lessons even when my brain isn’t cooperative!
Your efforts to regain your playing skills after a stroke are applauded by all who know you!
I agree 100%. It is truly a great all-around horn. It will jump when you want it to or you can play soft and pretty. Thanks for the feedback!
Your affirmation is very comforting. I play well but not in your league. It is great to know someone of your accomplishment agrees.

Have you ever tried the Kanstul Paris Series or the California series trumpets? Were they ever made? Thanks! Frank
Wow I’m sorry! I just saw your note this morning. I don’t check this part of my website very often. (Obviously!!!)
Kanstul closed it’s doors before those models ever became available. There may have been some prototypes, Charles would know. Would you like me to look into that?
