Schilke Bb Trumpets

With a Schilke instrument one achieves the highest degree of intonation that is technically possible. The small trumpets are the world's standards and Schilke's reputation was built, in the United States, on their domination of this market.

The Schilke B Series Custom Silver Bb Trumpets are amongst the most flexible, responsive, and rich-sounding instruments on the market. They are available in a variety of bell and bore combinations and feature tight valve tolerances for superior performance to meet the needs of the professional player. The S Series trumpets offer a denser core to the sound and greater resistance.

Schilke trumpets do not include a case and mouthpiece (except for the HD series, which do); these can be purchased separately.

$3,045.00
Built to the highest standards of craftsmanship and tradition associated with the Schilke company, the new HD series of instruments represent a new professional option in the Schilke line. Schilke recently presented the new HD instruments to the trumpet community at the '09 International Trumpet Guild convention at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. They were very well-received! The comments were overwhelming positive. "HD" stands for "heavy design"; based on the S series models, these instruments were created for the orchestral musician. The HD models use a heavier receiver and leadpipe, thicker tubing, and a heavy-guage one-piece "seamed" yellow brass bell. The additional mass offers a very thick, powerful sound that is focused, with wonderful projection. The HD line of Bb trumpets offer a broad, rich tone with excellent intonation. Built in the high quality Schilke tradition, this new design compliments the lighter B and X series trumpets. Designed for the symphonic player, the ML and L bore HD trumpets will feel controlled and powerful yet have the ability to project even the softest passages.

Lacquer and silver plate finish are available at the same low price. Gold plating is available as a special order; contact us at Thompson Music for pricing and availability. HD trumpets include a case and a Schilke mouthpiece.
