Kanstul bugles are widely used by military personnel as well as many members of the all-volunteer organization Bugles Across America. The Kanstul regulation bugle offers the full rich sound expected for any ceremony or call. This model is currently being used by the United States Marine Corps, the Patriot Brass Ensemble and the Blue Eagles Total Force Honor Guard at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, California.
A special variation of this model was commissioned by The Fightin' Texas Aggie Band of Texas A&M University for use in the elite "Bugle Rank" by senior cadets. These bugles can also be heard at West Point, played by the famous Hellcats, the oldest continually operating military band in the USA. In 2012, the national touring company of the hit play War Horse used a Kanstul bugle.
Kanstul, maker of fine bugles used by the military, supports TAPS 150 in the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of America's Most Famous Bugle Call.
The Regulation G Bugle I recently purchased is the finest bugle I have ever played. Since retiring from the Air Force in 1997, my playing has been pretty much dedicated to participating in military functions. A great deal of those functions have been participating in military funeral honors around Arizona. I always thought that I could get a better, richer, more full sound out of a bugle without relying on mouthpiece changes. Well, I found it. My days of playing the bugle have changed forever. The sound I get out of that bugle was for me, in my humble opinion, world class. Full, rich, wide open, big, and resonating don't even do justice to this sound. Range came easy, and the notes literally poured out the bell. The moment was so special for me, I found myself closing my eyes, and projecting myself to long ago places while playing TAPS full bore. What a sound.
I recently ordered the Regulation G bugle in silver. I could not be happier with the bugle. The quality and craftsmanship is excellent. Thank you for producing such a quality instrument.
