"The most gorgeous horn I have ever played"

I was looking to buy a flugelhorn for a while and I tried about 10 different brands. I was told Conn made a good one, so I tried a few of those and I wasn't impressed at all. I tried a Bach, and it sounded nice but nothing special. I used to play on a Yamaha, but it was not even an okay horn. Then I finally tried this horn and it blew me away! I have never heard a horn produce such a dark, soft, velvety tone. The valves on it are some of the best I've encountered on any horn. Some people say they don't need to use the 3rd valve trigger, but that's not true at all; it is completely necessary once you get below the staff. Otherwise the intonation is dead on. If you are in the market for a new flugelhorn, I don't think there is anyway you'll find a better horn. I play on a Curry mouthpiece which works perfect with this horn. I also use a Bob Reeves, but there are shank size issues. Buy this horn! You will not regret it!

I love this horn! I have had my Kanstul for about 3 years. During the time period I was contemplating upgrading my flugel and researching different flugels, Kanstul was one of the brands that I had interest. Just by the picture of this horn I was taken in by its beauty. I further researched other buyers' comments about this flugel and other reliable brands, but came back to the Kanstul. I have been very happy with my horn. The valve action is very smooth. Even though it has a 3rd valve trigger, I rarely need to use it. This horn has nice centeredness no matter what range. It has a very dark and sultry sound. It is a gorgeous flugel. One thing to keep in mind, is to be even more concious when handling, especially in quick horn changes, as the copper bell is very sensitive.

"Fantastic instrument. One of, if not the best flugelhorn ever made!"

I have owned several flugelhorns over the years, both rotary and piston valve, and I have found the Kanstul Signature flugelhorn to be better than any piston valve flugel I have ever played. It is equal to, if not better than my rotary valve Scherzer (which has stayed in its case for months) for most of the pieces I find myself playing. The valves and slides are as smooth working as I have found on any instrument. The tone is rich over the entire range of the horn, even up to high C and D. The intonation, once I played it for a few minutes, proved to be right on. I'm not sure that I will totally give up my Scherzer but I will never play any other piston valve flugelhorn. If you are in the market for a flugelhorn, you should at least play this one and see if it is right for you.

"I've had one for 8 years"

Professional Jazz, R&B, Orchestral, Church Clinton Twp, MI

I play Schilke trumpets, and when I needed a fluegel, I asked my contact there at the time, Steve Daniels, to recommend one. I knew it wouldn't be a Schilke, because they don't make one (the one they offered many many years ago was horrible). To replace my Leblanc fluegel, he said: "Try the Kanstul; it plays itself!!" He was right. I have used this professionally for 8 years now, and it has proven itself over and over again as the mellowest sounding fluegel, while retaining pitch accuracy as you ascend above the staff (a big issue w/ most fluegels). It is well made, and Zig Kanstul's designs are well proven over the past 30 or more years. Look for Arturo Sandoval and Charlie Davis playing one, as well as many other top professionals.

"Best Flugelhorn I've Ever Played"

I have owned a Yamaha Professional Flugelhorn (during the Chuck Mangione era) and play tested the Shew 6310Z as well as the LeBlanc Sandoval Model. This horn blows them ALL away in my opinion. This Kanstul is very beautiful with the copper finish; the valves are superior; the intonation is dead on and the tone is very dark and rich ... just what you want in a flugel. Kanstul is very consistent with their horns so you can order this horn with the utmost confidence. I own this horn and will never need another flugelhorn.
