Trumpets 2017-06-28T10:38:23+00:00

Traditional hand craftsmanship meets innovation to create the optimal trumpet for every playing style.

While the trumpet and cornet both stem from common ancestry they have traveled widely divergent paths to reach their current status.

Besides the shofar, the trumpet is the only musical instrument from the Old Testament of whose shape there is absolute certainty. As well, the trumpet (being the cylindrical member of the family) speaks in a brilliant, martial and confident manner – as royalty speaks – so its early history is easily traced through the records of the kings and princes since it was considered a badge of royalty.

While the early cornets were wooden, the trumpet – because of its royal sponsorship – has been metal ever since the stone age gave way to the age of metals. Writings from Solomon’s time tell us of 200,000 trumpets then in use, some made of precious metals. Because the cylindrical nature of the trumpet did not lend itself to the keyed-tone-hole system of the cornet, it was used continuously in its straight, open-tone form, utilizing different instruments in varying lengths for changes of key. Later, extra crooks were added, but this was a cumbersome and clumsy process. In 1788, an ingenious Irishman by the name of Clagget joined two trumpets together by means of a change valve, looking like a double French horn without valves. Shortly after, the piston valve was developed and the stage was set for the modern trumpet.

Just as regal brilliance of tone has characterized the trumpet through the ages, so Kanstul carries on this concept to modern perfection.

A wide variety of modern metals are used, not only to control this inherent brilliance, but to produce a durable instrument that functions mechanically with the lightening speed of contemporary requirements.

Since many portions of the instrument are cylindrical, the design of the conical sections and their relatively short tapers is critical. Our accoustic research has played a great part in the refinement of the trumpet.

Kanstul has contributed greatly to the advancement of the trumpet. Mechanically and acoustically, every Kanstul trumpet responds to the ever-increasing demands of contemporary literature, permitting its brilliant voice to speak in passages heretofore thought impossible.
