Pros: Wonderful sound, very flexible with great intonation
Cons:

 
A very fine remake of the Chicago Benge. It seems slightly heavier then most Benge horns but still maintains the playing tradition of the Benge horns.They are great all around horns with a great sound. I highly recommend this horn.

Pros: Taste of old Benge horns
Cons:

 
I owned a early LA Benge (serial 94xx) but valves leaks a little. As I don't trust in valve rebuildind, I decided to buy one of these... plays a little different I thought (maybe was because it is new) but the feel is exactly the same.

Pros: Great response, nice "Jazz" sound, goldbrass parts
Cons: Wouldnīt use it for classical music

 
I have the ML version. I like itīs "smoky" sound. Because of that I wouldnīt use it for classical music. Itīs an easy player, can be played soft and opens up while pushed.
Great for soloing. Manufacturing quality is great, only the valves need a break-in period. It has goldbrass mouthpipe and tuning bell crook, which is very useful against red rot.

Pros: Easy playing, a sound to cut through
Cons: valves need break -in

 
I have the Kanstul 1000 (ML) for about one week. The response is great, better than the Schilkes I would say. The sound is bright and easily cuts through the band. Using it for lead it gets powerful without loosing the center. A real "screamer".
Great idea with the goldbrass mouthpipe and tuning slide crook, should be standard on every trumpet.
Iīve got it as brand new, the valves need a break-in period, they are sometimes slow and the oil gets grey very fast and need a cleaning almost everyday. I guess, this will be over in few weeks. As example Schilke valves are great from beginning.

Pros: high quality, plays easily, great sound
Cons: none

 
Great playing horn. Very open and responsive. Fits well for section work, but also makes a great lead horn. Has a nice, bright, full sound. Really sparkles with a clean edge mid staff and above. Intonation on the Kanstul is much improved over the early Benges.

I would say that Benge made one of the best horns in the world, and that the Chicago Kanstul is an improved version of this. After all, Ziggy Kanstul bought out Benge and has the tools and mandrels used to make the original Benges.

I own 8 pro horns. This will likely become my primary horn.

If you are hunting a dark sounding, or fuzzy mellow sound, this horn is not for you. If you want a trumpet that sounds like a trumpet of the big band era-this is it!
