The Story of Zig Kanstul

The story of Zig Kanstul

Zig Kanstul's professional biography is also an account of brass instrument development from its beginnings in the United States to the present day. Now this incredible narrative is available in a new book: Zig Kanstul: Last of the Great Masters, authored by R. Dale Olson, a member of the international trumpet elite and a long-time associate of Kanstul. Arturo Sandoval provides the foreword, and brass authority, designer, historian, and restorer Robb Stewart is editor.

In this account of the lineage of the great masters of American brass instrument making, leading up to and including Zig Kanstul, Olson walks the reader through the history of significant brass design innovation and manufacturing from 1824 to 2016, with a technical—but also very personal—focus. The book closes on the legacy Zig has left his sons, including his master skills and the knowledge, tooling and commitment to continue the Kanstul tradition of quality and innovation.

Pricing is $60 for the hardcover and $30 for the softcover (free shipping). For information and ordering, email sales@kanstul.com, or call 714-563-1000.
