Kanstul Produces Miles Davis Mouthpiece For Sony/BMG
Kanstul Musical Instruments, producer of professional brasswinds and supplier to the industry has been contracted by Sony / BMG Music Entertainment to produce replicas of Miles Davis’ mouthpiece to be included in a comprehensive retrospective of Miles’ music under their Legacy Recordings label.
“We consider this a very special opportunity to help Sony showcase Miles’ genius and his enormous contributions,” said Charles Hargett, Sales Manager. “We’re proud to be included.”
The Miles Davis “Legacy” mouthpiece is produced exclusively for Sony and is an exact replica of Miles’ own mouthpiece. Kanstul was chosen because of the attention to detail authenticity that Sony / BMG required, and that any tribute to Miles Davis deserves. These mouthpieces are from a limited run and not available anywhere except with the limited edition Miles Davis Deluxe Box Set series. Only 2,000 mouthpieces will be made.
Kanstul – Mouthpiece Reproduction Technology
Kanstul uses modern technology which utilizes sophisticated imaging equipment to accurately measure and duplicate any existing mouthpiece. A small ruby probe glides gently over the interior of the mouthpiece providing over a thousand diameter measurements, a level of accuracy unsurpassed within the music industry. The CNC (Computer Numeric Control) lathe takes the data from the digital scan to machine a highly-finished duplicate mouthpiece that requires little or no buffing.

Located 1 mile east of Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, the modern 32,000 square foot production facility and combination sales and showroom annex provide musicians of all levels the advantages of Old World skilled craftsmen, and state state-of-the-art computer design capabilities.
