The company that manufactures these beautiful trumpets was started by Elden Benge.
He was a child genius, who started playing the trumpet at the age of seven, and became a professional at the age of fourteen.
He developed his first trumpet for a member of the Chicago Symphony in 1939.
Since then they have been producing trumpets for some of the world’s top musicians. Like Bach, Elden Benge had to stop playing professionally, so that he may give proper time and dedication to his business and manufacture the best Benge Bb and piccolo trumpets.

When most people are asked to name a legendary person related to the world of trumpets, they may mention trumpet playing greats such as Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, or even Doc Severinsen, but if you asked me, I would say Zigmant J Kanstul.
Zigmund, or Zig to his friends, started his working life as a trumpet assembler in 1953 in the F.E.
Olds factory. His co-workers used to down tools after making 12 trumpets, as payment was on a piecework basis, and the rate dropped to a mere 50c after twelve units, but not Zig.
The Kanstul trumpet is known as the Rolls Royce of trumpets and its legend is still growing.
