Comments about Kanstul 1000 Series Bb Trumpet:
Since Jerry Callet has retired from the trumpet making business, I looked to Kanstul for a replacement for my coveted worn out Kanstul made Callet Jazz that's been a faithful friend over the last 15 years. Having owned a Burbank Benge in college and for several years afterward, the news that Zig Kanstul was copying the famous Chicago Benge trumpet really intrigued me...enough to order one and give it a try. Here's what I found: Features - in addition to all the usual professional model trumpet features (1st valve slide saddle/ring, 3rd valve slide ring w/stop), Kanstul copied the Benge's signature reversed 2nd valve slide and single spit valve on the tuning slide. In contrast to the original Chicago model however, Kanstul includes short throw valves with flat buttons (picky maybe, but it's supposed to be a "copy").Quality - in comparison to my Callet Jazz, the quality of the Kanstul 1000 is lacking in finish and detail. Specifically, where the Callet's edges are smooth and clean, the Kanstul edges are sharp and seemingly unfinished. Silver-plating on the Kanstul is rough and not as smooth as other new trumpets I've tested recently. My biggest concern is with the Kanstul?s valves. They are sluggish at best and even though I've been told they require a "break-in" period, it's disappointing to see problems like this sneak past the Kanstul quality control folks.Value - In my opinion, I consider the "list price" on all new professional trumpets to be amusing. At the price I paid for the Kanstul, I'd rate its value about par for other models in the same price range.Overall - If I don't find a more suitable replacement for my Callet, I'll keep the Kanstul. It plays a little stuffier than I'm used to, but that's compared to a horn that's developed many leaks over the years and I'll need to make some minor personal playing adjustments. Sound-wise, it projects well and should work fine in most venues from combos to big band; however, I'll continue to use my Bach Strad for classical settings. If you're in the market for a new professional trumpet with some legacy in its design, I'd recommend you give the Kanstul a try.
