Acclaimed for their exceptional intonation, ease in response, and outstanding projection, the Renold O. Schilke designed series of Bb trumpets have set the standard for playability and build quality since their introduction in 1956.
The classic reverse main tuning slide with full radius bend, mouthpipe design and bore variation help create a responsive, open feel with an overall evenness throughout the range of the instrument at all dynamic levels. This characteristic design is streamlined, clean and elegant.
The B model provides a balanced, comfortable playing experience with a superior tone quality.
The B5 model has slightly more resistance than the B1 with a more compact sound and slightly more resistance than the B1, plus a consistency in timbre in all registers, and outstanding projection.
The "Beryllium" bell is made of extremely lightweight copper which offers more direct, compact projection.
Optional gold plating is available as well as a Sterling Silver bell - please call for price.
