Since their first appearance in 1989, Schagerl Meister instruments are well-known and renowed as the best-quality orchestral instruments. Schagerl Meister Series instruments are state-of-the-art in every way. The needs of musicians in Symphony, Opera and Chamber Orchestras are perfectly served by putting high-quality instruments in their hands. Schagerl instruments are custom made to serve the wishes of professional players.
The Schagerl Raven was conceived to be a rotary valved trumpet with a long lead pipe that travels into the first valve after a long trip out towards the bell and then back towards the mouthpiece - giving the instrument a length similar to a piston trumpet. The horn is extremely warm sounding when played softly, having characteristics close to a cornet.
