Fantastic instrument at an exceedingly fair price
The Kanstul MLP replica is a fantastic instrument with a playful response, perfect intonation, slotting, an excellent high register and a sound with which the nape of the neck is placed. And that at a price 600-800 euros under the competition of Bach, Yamaha, Schilke ...
I was looking for a trumpet for jazz, funk, and latin music, and I played and compared trumpets from different manufacturers at the Musikmesse. Bach could not convince me for this area, the Schilke X4 would have been a candidate, I was too cold, Stomvi too pointed, surely good for Latin but not for jazz.
The only competition would be the Yamaha 8335rgs, which also has a similar, albeit less pronounced, quality in the sound, but already in lacquered version is 650 EUR more expensive.
The Kanstul convinced me above all because of its higher flexibility and especially its unique sound quality. The sound is energetic and has an earthy and ruggedness, she whispers and screams loudly like a cat of prey and at the top she cuts the air like an arrow.
Although all the crucial elements such as valves are very well processed, the silver plating is not the best, and the first abrasion can be seen on the handles after the first year. Also the threads of the valves are a bit hakelig and need a bit Fummelei, to tighten them after the oil again.
My conclusion: Sounds more like in the area of ??the U-Musik settled.
If not perfect, the Kanstul is a sound machine with sound quality and perfect playability, making it an outstanding instrument.
Including the price, this instrument is unbeatable!
